I was looking at the Savage Worlds test drive PDF and was wondering how the action economy goes. Basically for non attack actions in a turn like agility tricks or trying to intimidate an opponent. Are these instead of an attack? One action in addition to an attack? or no real limit?

I found the answer looking at savage worlds showdown:

Each additional action attempted in a round subtracts 2 from all the figure’s trait rolls. If an adventurer wants to fire a gun with one hand and slice at an adjacent foe with a knife in his other hand, for instance, he subtracts 2 from both rolls. If he also wanted to Taunt someone at the same time, he subtracts 4 from all three rolls.
