Though it is certainly possible for an adventurer to progress through a story resolving all conflicts peacefully with reason or guile, it is likely that in the dangerous world of PAX BRITANNICA a situation will eventually devolve into combat. When violent conflict arises, there are limitless techniques, strategies, and abilities that could be brought to bear. Combat in the PAX BRITANNICA system has an ordered structure of turns and rounds, but during a given action characters have leeway to perform any action the players can envision.
