In FATE Core there are two types of combat: physical and mental. The mechanics are more or less the same: the physical combat uses fight or shoot against fight or athletics, while mental combat uses provoke against will.
Most monsters are stronger in physical combat than mental combat. So, if a character is strong in "provoke", it seems that he can use that to simply scare away every enemy or monster in his way.
Is that true? Am I missing something?
