Hey there, love the game, asking for a quick rules verification. So with the basic move “Flurry of Blows”, the text reads “On a 7-9, choose one of the below, in addition to dealing your damage”. One of the options is “Your attacks fail to connect; do not deal your damage.” Is this intentional? Can I optionally choose to just... Not deal damage on a successful hit? There doesn't seem to be any other mechanical perk to it. It kinda seems like a waste of an option unless I'm missing something?

You bring up a fair point! That option is supposed to allow you to dodge the consequences of a mixed success; but at that point, it's almost like you didn't roll the move at all. Thank you so much for the feedback; I think I'll change that option to something more interesting in the next update!
Absolutely! Just as a suggestion, maybe even change the wording a little? Something to the effect of “you don't give the enemy a chance to counter” or “deal less damage, but avoid an enemy trap”. Heck maybe even “deal no damage but gain Momentum”.
