  • 0 Damage Weapon?

    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,

    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.
