When the Wolf Howls
Opposed Brawn Tests
The following rules apply if Brawn is ever used in an Opposed Test.

In a skill contest no amount of Brawn skill can compensate for physical mismatches. As a good rule of thumb, compare damage modifiers. For each point of difference in one person’s damage modifier to the other, the person with the greatest modifier gets +10% to the contest while the one with the lower modifier gets -10%. If the difference is 3 steps or greater, it is probably fair to say that stronger person automatically wins.
Example. 0 damage modifier vs +1D2. This is a 1 point difference therefore the character with 0 modifier gets -10% while the one with +1D2 gets +10%.
