Re: Strike to stun

1. Yes. The talent bonus is good to have to get extra SL in the opposed Test and thus for more damage, but won’t give you bonus to the Opposed Str/Endurance. And it is Characteristic vs Skill test, typically Skill is much higher than the Characteristic, so the defender can have the upper hand and i...

Re: Strike to stun

Thank you for the reply. I hope you are willing to further share your views and clarify if I'm wrong : 1. You use your strike to stun talent, gaining SL bonus to the opposed melee test. You will then stand a better chance to hit having the s2s talent due to the SL bonus. The hit is resolved as norma...

Strike to stun

Could someone share their point of view on these questions, please: Do you inflict damage if you succeed to hit, but fail the opposed strength/endurance test during strike to stun? Does advantage also apply to the opposed strength/endurance test when striking to stun? Would you let someone use a shi...

Re: Maximum SL bonus?

Thanks for the reply. I did find some ideas for limiting advantage on page 164, but not SL bonuses from talents. Please, correct me if I'm wrong. It seems to me there are no options given in the rulebook to limit SL bonuses. Also, at cubicle 7, FAQ #2, I found an example of a mutant having a bunch o...

Maximum SL bonus?

Are there any upper limit for SL bonuses tied to talents? If combining talents and other bonuses, it is not unrealistic to achieve +8 SL bonus for example before taking your rolled score into account. For example 3x reversal, 3x riposte, and and a swordbraker in each hand, in melee opposed tests. Th...

Re: Talents and SL

Thanks for the reply. Would you allow combining riposte and reversal, e.g. 3 x riposte and 3 x reversal giving +6 SL on successful defensive rolls? This also goes for other defensive talents like reversal and shieldsman. Combining such skills give incredibly small chances of loosing the opposed test...

Talents and SL

Could someone please comment on this example regarding the riposte talent? Grorix the slayer has melee 80 and rolls 50, giving him 3 sl. Magnar, the fencer is the defender and has 2 levels of riposte and melee 60. He uses a foil, giving a target score of 70. Magnar rolls 50. Who wins the opposed tes...
