The get into a fight move also seems to be missing. Apparently a Shieldmaiden can get into a fight like a man, but there's no other mention of the move. There's the one about fight with your weapons and armour but that seems like it would modify a move, not actually resolve a fight.
Is there a missing move, or has get into a fight been renamed?
Yes! Those are both the same move. My bad.
1."mark a child with the gift of sorcery" is a purely fictional move and you are left to interpret it as you will. Not all advances in SotI have obvious beneficial effects, they're more of a pacing mechanism really.
2. Not intentional. It's an oversight on my part. She needs an extra move.
3. Yes. Everyone can inflict harm as established
, by cutting your throat while you're asleep for example. You can also trade harm for ham (again, as established). Otherwise if their enemy is fighting back (get into a fight) women are in a bad position, because they don't have a basic fighting move, which gives men a definite edge. At least that's how it's supposed to work.
4. Correct, there is no counter. I wanted to see if I could get away without "hitpoints". "It doesn't get better" from the Harm roll is, again, a purely fictional move...it's very much like when you roll 20 fallout in Dogs.
The "heal 1 harm" bit is a leftover from the earlier draft, again, my bad.
Thanks guys, this is helping a lot.
