When a character melees someone, roll a die and add their FIGHT. When shooting an opponent with a bow or spell that requires "SHOOT" then the player rolls a die and adds their SHOOT.

Now there are some spells which refer to "ATTACK" (like Push). What is ATTACK and do you add your FIGHT to the die roll?

I'm pretty sure you don't use your shoot value when doing a spell. It's only for when you actually use of bow or crossbow.

Some spells are considered "shooting attacks" - but that just means it uses the rules for shooting attacks (line of sight, cover, etc) and any appropriate situational modifiers apply.

in the case of Push, if successfully cast, you roll a d20 and add the spell's attack (+10? I think ? I don't have the book handy) and the target rolls and adds their fight (like they would for any attack, whether shooting or melee).
