Privilege in Contested Risks

Postby hans otterson » Mon Oct 19, 2009 10:01 pm

So, winning Privilege in a Risk means I as a player get to state whether or not my character succeeds in her intention.

But pp 120-121 seem to say (without making it clear) that in a contested risk, Privilege simply means that my character succeeds in her intention.

Is this true, or does Privilege work the same in both normal risks and contested risks? I.e., if I as a player win Privilege in a contested risk, can I still state that my character does not succeed in her intention? Or does Privilege mean a different thing here?

In a Contested Risk, you still get to state whether your character succeeds or fails if you win privilege.

Awesome, thanks! The example in the text basically says, "I win Privilege so my character succeeds."

It would have made a world of difference to say, "I win Privilege so I decide that my character succeeds." Without that it totally confuses the issue.

Of course, understandable. John should bookmark that page for a slight change. I'll try to remind him. :)
