Characters in this game can be surprised and be unable to do anything.

Some monsters use a die other than a d6.

The length of surprise, in game segments, is the difference between the two rolls.

Example: The party rolls a 1 and the monster rolls a 6. The monster gets to attack for 5 combat segments; however, dexterity can lower that amount. And rangers, and others, roll separately for surprise.
