Forgive me if these questions have already been answered at length elsewhere.
If a PC has Reflexes and comes up against an enemy who far outclasses them to the point that the enemy just “does” a thing and forces a resistance roll, does Reflexes have any effect on that? Example: “You face off with the Red Sash sword master, ready to duel, but he’s obviously a superior swordsman. He slashes at you, quick as lightning, cutting your wrist, causing you to drop your sword. You can resist if you want to.” The PC: “I have Reflexes, does that make any difference?”
Recently in my game one of my assassins who has the Glorious Visage ability decided to use it on a brothel full of ladies of the evening and their clients. He’s got two trauma so he’s doing level two harm to all of them. At the time I assumed that the harm levels only really count for PC’s and that for an average person such an amount of damage would be lethal. I ended up having about half the people in the room just drop dead. But now I’m not so sure. Would they have just been severely injured instead?
Thanks for any and all replies. I love this game!
