Effect Spotlight: Freeze and Freeze Limb
Some people seemed unclear about the effect Freeze. The rulebook says the following:

---------------------------------------------------------------------
The stated body part(or entire body) is frozen in place and cannot be moved or used to cast spells or deliver attacks. The body part may be safely used to block attacks if it is an arm that is holding a weapon or shield but still cannot be moved. If delivered as a melee strike must strike the stated body part: a limb for Freeze Limb or the torso for Freeze Body. Additionally, if only “Freeze” is called it will Freeze whatever body part it strikes, a limb if it strikes a limb or the entire body if it strikes the torso.
---------------------------------------------------------------------

On a basic level, the Freeze Limb effect is very similar to disable, but it's fixed by different things. You can break out of it with a Burst of Strength for 1 pool. Freedom, Dispel (and Decimate) Magic, and Touch of Strength will get someone else out of it. The Freeze Limb skill is available to players with the Storm or Nature paths, and allows this effect to be delivered as a spell or weapon strike.

Freeze Body is an effect similar to Paralyze. You can break out of it with a Burst of Strength for 4 pool. Freedom, Dispel (and Decimate) Magic, and Touch of Strength will get someone else out of it. The Freeze Body skill is available to players with the Glacier path, and allows this effect to be delivered as a spell or weapon strike.

If a monster calls 'Freeze' then it affects the limb it strikes, or the body if it strikes there.

It usually lasts 1 minute.

And just a reminder Pages 173-175 in the rulebook are a handy quick reference sheet for nearly every effect you can be subjected to in combat.
