The Quickness Statistic

Your Quickness Stat relates to both your speed of locomotion and your reflexes and reaction time. Your Quickness indicates your speed when walking, running, swimming, etc. It also influences how quickly you can react to catch a thrown ball or dodge out of the way of a falling rock. Quickness is used in several ways in combat - it determines who has the first action, how often you can fire a missile weapon, and affects your ability to avoid attacks aimed at you. The short form for Quickness is QUI.
