Endurance This is the equivalent of a character's hitpoints as most damage reduces endurance. It represents the ability of a character's body to withstand physical hardship before the body itself ceases to function. A character with 0 or less endurance is considered to be Helpless and cannot spend points normally until the round ends. A character dies when their endurance is a negative inverse of their max endurance. For example, a character with 7 endurance dies at -7 endurance. It's possible to use Endurance to perform a Desperate Act. If combat takes longer than the first round, characters performing combat actions begin to lose 1 endurance per round until combat completes to Fatigue. If a character is Resting during combat, Fatigue rules do not apply.

Reflex How quickly the character can avoid mishaps, deflect enemy attacks and the order of combat events. Reduced by Heft.
Coordination The precision of a character's footwork, the accuracy of his attacks. Coordination is spent on each attack action the character makes in a round. The lowest Coordination expenditure is equal to a weapon's Heft. Coordination is also used for Some attacks have minimum coordination requirements, such as redirecting reaching weapons between an old target and a new target in the reach rules. While a character is welcome to bet as much or as little Coordination on an attack as they like, the minimum coordination required to hit a target is equal to the target's current reflex. To bypass armor, the attacker's coordination needs to exceed the target's current
