View Full Version : 0 Damage Weapon?

04-20-2015, 05:41 AM
Hello all! :)

I've created a character for the household, that has 2 on athletics. The damage for a knife is athletics-2. Does it mean we round it up to a minimum of 1 or that he can't do any damage with knives?
Couldn't find anywhere in the book, so I bring it up to you guys.

Thanks ahead,
rui :)

I would say a minimum damage of 1 should be granted (it is a similar problem if you fight with fists, I guess).

The weapons table (table 9.3) has a '1' next to the damage header suggesting a footnote. The only footnote is a sort of sword symbol saying 'minimum 1' but which doesn't seem to relate to anything elsewhere on the table.

I assume these are meant to refer to each other, so yes I think damage should have a minimum of 1.

I could have read that wrong, but I'd probably house rule it that way anyway. 2 is the default ability score for an average person, and most people could wound an unarmoured person with a knife if they hit them.
