  • SWD Shaken Question

    Under SWD, on a Wild Card's turn how many times are they entitled to make a Spirit roll to unshake?

    For example, say they roll Spirit to unshake to begin, then withdraw from melee and get Shaken again on the same action, would they be entitled to roll Spirit again to unshake on the same action?

    Nope. At the beginning of a character's turn, before they declare any actions, they roll Spirit to recover from Shaken (and they may spend Bennies to reroll the Spirit roll if they wish). If the Spirit roll failures, the character remains Shaken until the beginning of their next turn (and will need to roll Spirit again).

    Let's assume the character in your example succeeded at their Spirit roll (they are no longer Shaken). They Withdraw from combat and are hit, becoming Shaken again. That character will remain Shaken until the beginning of their next turn, where they roll Spirit in an attempt to remove the new Shaken condition.

    Now, let's assume the character in the example failed the Spirit roll. They are still Shaken when they Withdraw from combat (remember, free actions are allowed when Shaken), but then the second Shaken result would convert to a Wound. At that point, the character could choose to Soak the Wound. If the Wound is removed, the Shaken status is as well. Otherwise, the character remains Shaken until the beginning of their next turn, and their Spirit roll now receives a -1 due to the Wound penalty.
