  • This effect can knock down an opponent if their Fatigue is reduced to zero, making it particularly useful during hand-to-hand combat. The debilitating benefits of reducing an adversary's Fatigue include lowering their ability to block or dodge attacks, land a hit with a weapon, and successfully cast spells.
