Combat struggles have risk for characters who must brave death, or serious injury, to fight through the enemy in order to rescue prisoners, hold a rear guard action to let friends escape, blast away in savage firefights to defend an important position, or fire missiles to disable a deadly orbital space station.
It is possible to use the new rules in this tool kit with the Inner Core rules only, however this toolkit expands the mechanisms of The Book of Struggles to add some detailed support for combat and gives the best value when all the core rules are in use. It provides rules extensions for managing injuries and how they heal, the method by which a combat struggle can apply injuries to characters, and the mechanisms for medical intervention.
The toolkit also supplies a set of guides for handling different situations such as brawling, close combat and firefights. Additionally you are given sets of possible non injury complications that might arise commonly in those combat situations.
This toolkit builds on the All Us Gamers RPG core rules.
