The Escalation Die
The Escalation die is a special die placed on the table during combat. Each round, the Escalation Die’s face value increases by one. All PCs get a bonus to hit equal to the Escalation Die’s face value. In addition, some maneuvers, spells and powers get special bonuses or perks, or can only be used, when the Escalation Die shows a certain value.
