How Does This Work?

Story Stakes

The stakes listed below are for story. Although some stakes may say "and allies dies" or "and people get pushed off a cliff" assume those are NPCs. Damage to characters is determined by the players themselves. If you want your character mortally wounded, go for it, regardless of outcome of the duel.
