A character may wish to pause to see what other characters or foes do during their turns.
When a character's Initiative card comes up in the initiative deck they can declare they are going to delay. This must be done before the character dresses any rotated cards, plays any actions, uses any flow or in any other way starts their initiative turn.
Their Initiative card is placed face up at the bottom of the initiative deck and play continues with the next card being drawn from the deck. When the initiative sequence reaches the face-up card, the character must act or lose their turn this round.
