Action Points are a measure of short-term fatigue, introduced in the aforementioned Pyramid issue. They're a way to regulate longer combats, by giving something that must be expended to take many common actions. Ideally, they're supposed to create lulls and flurries in combat.

They are a thing of awesomeness. It makes combat feel like a lot less of "I attack again and again and again!" and more like an actual fight where people get tired.

It would fit my current campaign.
Flash Step is really just Heroic Charge redefined as a cinematic skill (I find Heroic Charge too powerful as a default option, but its mobility is excellent for an over-the-top game like Cherry Blossom Rain). For one Fatigue, you can make a move and attack. Your opponent needs to succeed at a Quick Contest of Perception vs your Flash Step roll, or a run-around attack counts as an attack from behind (Importantly, CBR uses the rule that all characters with Trained by a Master or Weapon Master can defend against attacks from behind, making Flash Step a mook-killer, but not a sure-fire way to murder named NPCs). You can apply a -5 to double your move on a flash step, or -10 to triple it. Using Flash Step counts as an Acrobatic Action for your first defense (that is, if you succeed at Flash Step, you gain a +2 to defend against the next attack).

Thanks much, Mailanka.

I will probably start a new thread on this subject shortly.
