The Failure Category (FC) is the margin by which the die result exceeds the relevant Attribute. The FC is used to determine how badly the action failed.
To calculate the FC of a roll, simply subtract the final value of the Attribute from the result on the die.
- Example:
- The Fusilier Angus, with a BS Attribute of 12, makes a BS Roll and gets an 18. His FC on this roll is 6 (18 - 12 = 6). If he had had a +3 MOD in the same roll, his FC would be 3 (18 – 15 = 3).
