The Fate of Old Andrukah
Prerequisites: Adeptus Astartes
The Battle-Brother stands immovable and indomitable, as if he were made of rock and iron against which foes break like water against a cliff. The Battle-Brother may spend a Fate Point as a Full Action to adopt a Stalwart Defence. While adopting this condition, the Battle-Brother may not move and may not Dodge. He may make a Parry reaction against all successful strikes against him, and all Damage he suffers is reduced by –2. Furthermore, the character’s enemies gain no benefits for outnumbering the Battle-Brother in close combat. These effects last until the Battle-Brother chooses to end his Stalwart Defence or until he is rendered incapable of fighting.
