Hello again,
if an Extra uses Battle Cry or Berserk in combat can he attack in the same turn too or activating the skill IS the action?

Battle Cry uses their Action, but gives bonuses to the others for their Actions.

I don't understand who rolls dice during a conflict. Let's see these 2 rules:

Pag.4: "...So, if warding off the blow of the rock golem is a CR3, then
the acting player adds three black dice to their pool..."

- It seems the PC's roll dice to react enemy's actions (GG doesn't roll dice, like PbtA, Cypher System, etc.)

Pag.5: "AR (Armor Rating): The value of protection given by your armor.
AR value ranges from 1-3 and is represented by additional black dice an
opponent must roll to attack you."

- Here it seems to me the opposite. Extras roll for attack (NPCs roll for attack at their turn while PC's defend using passive ranks)

What I did not understand?

The active player rolls everything. If it's your turn, you 1) figure out your white dice (your abilities and weapons), 2) figure out black dice (your target's CR, Skills, Armor, or Weapons), and then you, the active player, rolls all the dice. Using the example you gave:

Pag.4: "...So, if warding off the blow of the rock golem is a CR3, then
the acting player adds three black dice to their pool..."

This means that if you are attacking a golem who is CR3, you will add 3B to your dicepool. You are still the one rolling all the dice though.

Pag.5: "AR (Armor Rating): The value of protection given by your armor.
AR value ranges from 1-3 and is represented by additional black dice an
opponent must roll to attack you."

The AR writeup under common terms is written player facing. So if you have AR2, it would add 2B to your opponent's dicepool to hit you. It's saying the same thing as the first example, but talking about people hitting...See more

Yes, thank you Eloy. Now is clear.
I misunderstood the Golem example cause my not perfect english :)
I thought it meant that the PCs should roll the pool dice to "defend themselves" (during monter turn/action) from the monster (like RPGs where GM does not roll dice at all ^^)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
