Willpower

Derived from Resolve + Composure, Willpower works like emergency dice in Heavy Gear. You can spend a point of Willpower to add +3 to a Dice roll or increase a Defensive attribute by +2.

You may never have more Willpower available at your disposal than your Willpower stat. The amount of Willpower a character has will ebb and flow over the course of a story as it is spent, and regained.

  • You can regain 1 point of Willpower by playing out a scene appropriate to his vice.
  • You regain all Willpower points by playing out a scene appropriate to his virtue.
  • You can regain 1 point of Willpower by getting a full night’s rest. Getting interrupted, or restless sleep does not count towards this.
  • You regain all Willpower points at the end of a story.

The Storyteller/GM has final approval on regained Willpower points.
