Hi ! so I have now went trough a fully built session zero and it went very well.

while fighting went trough some situations that we did not have the answer to so here they are :

- does attacking with a physical rune adds +1 damage to the attack ? my player made a basic attack with a physical
rune and then a spiritual and we wondered if there would be a damage difference

- about piercing damage, let's say that I look at the Bardiche which has 4 DF and 2 pierce, is it a total of 6 damage ? or is it 4 that pierces 2 armor ?

- about knockback, if an NPC gets pushed into another PC or NPC, what happens ? does the pushback stops or there's a tumble effect, is there damage
related to colliding with an obstacle ?

that is all for now
thank you !

Great! Glad you're having fun.

No, not in RGS2. The difference playing a Physical rune makes is it allows you to weild weapons of your Size or larger. Spiritual and Mental runes do not. However, in the forthcoming RGS3 that's exactly how it works.

Pierce just reduces enemy armour. So, if you're fighting a naked farmer then Pierce does not matter because there's no armour to get through. The naked farmer would just take the 4. But if you're fighting a soldier wrapped in a tin can with 4 PF, then Pierce 2 would lower that by 2, meaning of your 4 damage 2 would get through.

I'd certainly slap on 1 DF per hex you were unable to move because you hit something in the way. I'd also, if they're getting knocked into another person, give that other person a chance to counter with a Physical rune or take the same.
