Lifting and Feats of Strength
Characters can automatically accomplish feats of strength on the chart below within their Strength rating, including magical enhancements. Characters can push themselves temporarily by rolling Willpower difficulty 8. So a character with Strength 4 who gets two successes on the Willpower roll can perform level 5 and 6 feats of Strength once. Failure does nothing, but a botch inflicts a level of unsoakable bashing damage on the character due to muscle strain. Characters that get -1 on Strength rolls (such as orcs and half-orcs) also get -1 difficulty on Willpower rolls relating to feats of Strength. Characters with a Strength penalty of +1 (such as gnomes ) also get a +1 difficulty on Willpower rolls relating to feats of Strength Characters can work together pooling Willpower successes. It’s the Storyteller’s discretion how many can work together at any specific task. Characters taxing their strength take Fatigue checks at the Game Masters discretion. Sure a character with a Strength score of 4 can smash a single barrel without making a roll, but he cannot smash a hundred barrels without tiring out an/or injuring himself.
