Abilities

There are six abilities in ICONs, representing three physical traits (Prowess, Coordination, and Strength) and three mental traits (Intellect, Awareness, Willpower). These traits are the basis of all characters (and NPCs) are are used to determine the success and outcome of any task.

Prowess

Prowess is the measure of a character’s expertise in close combat. When kicking, punching, stabbing, or otherwise fighting in close quarters, this ability determines the outcome of the attack.

Coordination

Coordination is the measure of a character’s agility and dexterity. When shooting, throwing, dodging, balancing, or otherwise employing agility, dexterity, or coordination, this ability determines the outcome of the action.

Strength

Strength is the measure of a character’s physical strength and endurance. When lifting heavy objects, determining damage with melee or thrown attacks, or otherwise engaged in activities relying on physical power, this ability determines the outcome of the action. Your Strength level also affects your Stamina, or ability to withstand damage.

Intellect

Intellect is a measure of the character’s intelligence. When attempting to invent, solve a problem, learn, or otherwise use smarts, this ability determines the outcome of the action.

Awareness

Awareness is a measure of the character’s intuition and perceptiveness. When attempting to sense danger, spot something, recognize a hunch, or otherwise work on instinct rather than analyzing a situation, this ability determines the outcome of the action.

Willpower

Willpower is a measure of the character’s mental strength and force of personality. When dealing with issues of will or using powers of the mind, this ability determines the outcome of the action. It influences social interaction and making an impression on people. Your Willpower level also affects your Stamina, or ability to withstand damage.
