Ah, so it falls under the same principle as support actions by watcher characters.

Does this mean that the villain declares his action, builds and rolls a dice pool and then the heroes get a chance to react against it? It seems a bit odd that a villain could add a D12 to the doom pool just because he has a D12 trait in a power set.

If you're activating opportunities to step up existing doom dice, don't you have to step up the lowest die in your pool?

comment Mini Six: Do wound and multiple-action penalties apply to damage rolls?
Being heavily abbreviated, Mini Six doesn't really define "action". I can see how the stunned condition would reduce melee weapon damage but multiple actions wouldn't. As for defences like dodge, parry, block and soak, Mini Six makes them static numbers (so soak is always might dice * 3 + pips + armour and so on). Under that system, I wouldn't adjust soak for a stunned or wounded character. So while it might be inconsistent under D6 Star Wars, it appears to be the correct approach under Mini Six. Thanks for a thorough answer.

comment Mini Six: How can I avoid the “dodge” skill tax?
Thank you for the detailed response. Notice that Block and Parry are defences that come as a side-effect of a combat skill, whereas Dodge is still a defence that costs skill dice but is never used for checks. Perhaps it should key off some other skill (acrobatics?)? I am trying to tweak the combat system to give it an "action movie" feel, similar to the Feng Shui RPG. Having PCs fall incapacitated after a single hit doesn't really give the correct vibe. I am considering switching to the body point system and making BP equal 4 times the number of pips in might.
