Reference - Acts of Faith
Keep a pool of Faith points. At the start of each Turning Point, if there are any friendly NOVITIATE operatives in the killzone, you gain 3 Faith points. In addition, you gain one Faith point at the end of each activation, if any of the following apply: - During that activation, a friendly NOVITIATE operative with the Combat specialism incapacitated an enemy operative in a combat. - During that activation, a friendly NOVITIATE operative with the Marksman specialism incapacitated an enemy operative in a shooting attack. - During that activation, a friendly NOVITIATE operative with the Staunch specialism performed a mission action. - A friendly NOVITIATE operative with the Scout specialism was activated and finished that activation within ⬟ of the enemy dropzone. Faith points can be subtracted so that friendly NOVITIATE operatives can perform Acts of Faith listed below. Each Act of Faith will specify when it can be used, its effect and how many Faith points you must subtract from your total to use it. If you cannot subtract the required Faith points from your total, you cannot use that Act of Faith. Unless otherwise specified, only one Act of Faith can be used during each activation (friendly or enemy). For example, a shooting attack is made against a NOVITIATE operative. In the Roll Defence Dice step of that shooting attack, that operative's controlling player decides to subtract 2 Faith points to use Divine Shield to retain one failed save as a successful normal save. No other Acts of Faith can then be performed during that activation (other than Faithful Blessing).
