In our fifth BONE BATTLE, we have resident Grimm, Nick Burkhardt, versus resident zombie butt-kicker, Michonne. An interesting match-up, this, with both characters having been thrown into worlds quite different from our own, requiring them both to access new and different skills and techniques to fight the good fight. Yet underneath it all, these characters both embody a deep sense of loyalty and commitment–of doing what is right and good. And they look damn fine doing what they do. Let that not be forgotten.
Fanny rolled for Nick Burkhardt, while Nana rolled for Michonne. Not sure how this works? Check out About the Bone Wars. Basically, we each roll up to 5 dice, depending on the point allocation for each contender in that attribute (Strength, Dexterity, Intellect, Charisma).
A success is counted when a contender rolls a 5 or a 6 on any individual die. The contender with the highest amount of successes wins the roll for that attribute. The contender who wins the most attribute rolls, wins the battle!
You have the right to remain badass!
