See also: Challenge Effects
A Skill Challenge with the Recovery effect represents a situation in which the heroes can make amends for mistakes they made earlier in the challenge. When a hero succeeds on a check by 5 or more, that hero can choose to remove one Failure instead of earning a Success.
You might use this effect when your heroes are negotiating with a noble who is as easily flattered as offended, or during a Skill Challenge in which the heroes are working to evade a pursuing bounty hunter.
Use the Recovery Effect when:
- The situation allows the heroes to make up for their mistakes.
- You want to encourage skilled heroes to compensate for the lower skills of other heroes.
- You want to reward heroes for significant Successes without bringing the challenge to a premature end.
