Mixing Stun and Physical damage

Postby paltrysum » Wed Mar 27, 2019 8:53 pm

If a character has his END reduced to zero using a Stun weapon and then recovers only to be, let's say, shot with a gauss pistol, reducing his STR and DEX to zero, does he die? Or do you count Stun and Physical damage separately?

Here are the rules listed for Stun: "If the target’s END is reduced to 0, the target will be incapacitated and unable to perform any actions for a number of rounds by which the damage exceeded his END. Damage received from Stun weapons is completely healed by one hour of rest."

So in the scenario above, let's suppose he recovers from the stun, but doesn't get the rest immediately and is then attacked again, receiving Physical damage. I'm not sure the rules are clear on how you attribute the damage. Any ideas?

I consider them separate.

Both do END damage, use the higher damage of the two to calculate current END.
