Most of the rules are straightforward and clear, but after a quick mock combat I have a few questions (I have searched but can't find answers):
- There is no mention of a backstab ability, beyond the +4 attacking from behind. In many games a thief gets double damage or higher with a successful backstab. Has anyone houseruled this?
- The rules state that the order of events for combat is that magic and missile weapons go first. I had a Magic User in combat with a thug - the way I did it was like this: Spell is cast and takes effect (dependent on roll), then the Thug (if they are still alive) gets to attack. Both the Thug and the Magic User make combat rolls. If the Thug wins they do damage, if the Magic User wins they don't do damage as they have already cast a spell. Is that right?
- The Strongarm skills states
. Does this mean +1 to the number rolled on the d6, or +1 to the actual damage?When using any brawling or any hand weapon, the Hero adds +1 to the damage roll.
