    Hey guys,

    Question regarding disengage;
    When prysm and gata are in b2b and prysm wants to disengage she rolls her agility.
    This agility role has a build in shield. Is the purpose of this shield only to taunt?
    She still needs to roll hits to disengage right?

    cheers.

    Want to watch something funny related to this? Look up Taowu stats for disengagement.

    I think of Tao Wu and Prysm each spending 2 action points to spend on a Move action but not necessarily intending to move at all. Remember that if you do gain an unblocked :2: during a disengage roll you must move at least one space.
    So Tao Wu who is adjacent to an enemy character can spend 2 action points, use his agility of :3::3:, add no extra dice so guaranteeing that he fails the disengage roll but spending the :3::3: to activate his general switch to force his opponent to discard a Tactic. If his opponent character did not displace itself in the disengage roll, Tao Wu can rinse and repeat. Not a bad activation in the right circumstances.
    Prysm's thing is the Taunt. As the :1: is a sure thing and :.: only lacks at least one :3: one-sixth of the time, she triggers her general switch of :1::3: to Taunt a character within range :SL:1-3, 83% of the time. However in her case there is one-third chance she gets :2:. It may get blocked by her opponent's :R:. If she is forced to move, her attack Gamma Radiation has range:L:1-2 so she could use the three remaining Action points to attack on her way out, use the remaining movement points to get into good position and stay within :SL:1-5 of taunted characters.
    Interesting examples of using disengage for switches when your goal is not necessarily to get far away.
