Certain environmental conditions may affect your ability to punch, stab or shoot but your opponents. For example, arctic temperatures, complete darkness and incessant winds could make combat more difficult without the proper equipment. Environmental conditions are location based and are dependent on the season. These conditions apply even if the weather or seismic events are generated by magical or supernatural means.

Apply the following Environmental Modifiers (EM) to the Defense Target Number, skill tests and all move actions, along with the range modifiers and situational modifiers.
