Default Re: Defense bonus and ATR

I recall that it was suggested (somewhere else on this forum) to think of the mechanical offensive and defensive advantages of Altered Time Rate as coming from the ability to All-Out Attack and then still close out the turn with an All-Out Defense.

Basically, for example, Joe Twice-as-Fast would be able to line up a better attack (AoA Determined), or make a lightning fast attack (AoA Determined + Deceptive), or strike at double-time (AoA Double) . . . and still enjoy defensive benefits of moving faster than the opponent can keep up with (AoD Dodge) or being fast enough to attempt two defenses (AoD Double).
