Earthdawn 4E: Rules Variant 25 - Updates Part 9: Gauntlet

This is the twenty-fifth Rules Variant, part of an ongoing series about Earthdawn Fourth Edition. Introduction and Index.

Everything contained here is the work of a fan and not associated with FASA Games.

This is part of a significant update to better align things with lessons learned and best practices. The primary focus is updating various effects to static Difficulty Numbers, but this is not where it stops and it includes abilities outside that scope which require some attention.

The changes to Gauntlet are modest, replacing Battle Shout and Maneuver, while shuffling a couple talents.
