Terror Rank

I've looked all over the book and looked at the errata and I'm still confused on how exactly Terror works. The thread I found that was most pertinent here, but it doesn't seem to come to a consensus and even ends with a post saying how confused they are. The Terror section says to reference the Virtues section, and then the sidebar in the Virtues section says to reference the Narrator section on Ork. Is it just a standard contested risk and rolling the Ork's Terror is to beat 10, or do the ven have to beat the Terror roll's total? I'd be most thankful if someone could clear this up for me or just point me to the pages or posts I'm missing.

I'll do my best to bug John about it, whether it's time for clarification or errata will be determined by him at this point. I'll also ask the other GMs and see how they run it to see if it helps.

When I ran orks with Terror, I made it a contested Risk, sort of. Players had to roll Courage (to say no to their Fear) or run screaming away (or something more horrible). If they succeeded, they got to use their wagers against the Ork's Terror Rank (which I used as automatic wagers-like a successful Beauty Risk).

Hope that helps.

That's how I've decided to run it until we get a ruling. Seems the closest to what may be intended, it saying you use standard Courage risk rules and all. Guess we're kinda dead in the water until we hear something though. Damn, I was hoping there was a consensus on it.

You need to make a Courage risk against the rank of the ork x 5. Rank 3 ork = target number 15.

Wow, right after I posted. Was so confused when it said there was a new post in the thread when it went back to the index

Awesome, thank you kindly. Glad to have that pinned down so neatly.

Ok. now I'm confused.

The statement quoted contradicts the (unoficial) errata Link
Well maybe not contradicts but it says nothing about consequences of failing a Terror risk.

Are both of them true, e.g.: make a Risk at TN= Terror rank x 5 and if failed a Ven has to make minimal wagers on any Risk against Ork?

Those two statements don't contradict each other.

That's what it sounds like to me. One governs the risk, one on the fallout.

It doesn't fix the issues I had in the original thread. For the time being, barring more official errata, I intend to use THIS thread as the official errata (Courage is a non-contested roll against a static TN equal to the ork rank x 5) and ignore the other one until such time that it is clarified.
