your benefit. For example, my character is trying to talk her way in
to an exclusive club. I can tag my Identity: Goth Rocker quality to
give me the extra oomph I need, saying the bouncer's a fan of mine.
Compelling happens when one of my Challenges presents a problem for
me. For example if Echo is in the middle of a date, and the Shadow
Realm kidnaps her date, I get a Determination.
That's just off the top of my head. I hope it helps.
