Edge - Gallows Humor
Gallows Humor Background

When a character with this Edge fails a Fear check, they may immediately re-roll using the Taunt skill with the same modifier. If the Taunt roll is also failed, the character suffers the effects of Fear. If that effect is a roll on the Fear Effects Table, it is made at +2.

The ridiculing phrase must be spoken aloud by both the player and the character. Being gagged or otherwise speechless deprives a character of the benefits of this Edge. In other words, you have to actually make light of the situation—no joke, no roll.
