Combat effect

Postby demonsbane » Mon Mar 19, 2018 1:54 pm

"The Effect of an attack roll is always applied to the damage of a weapon ", however I can't find a definition as to what an " effect of an attack is?
I see you need 8+ with DM to hit.
I also note under armour " An attack with an Effect of 6 or more always inflicts at least one point of damage, regardless of the actual damage rolled for or the Armour score". I suspect effect has got something to you final to hit roll, but what exactly is it?

Thank you, this was driving me bonkers. Note to editors. If you are not including an index, then pls a glossary or page reference would really help a new player.

YUp every point over the 8 to hit adds one to the damage.
