This situation came up in a game I played the other day. I attack with the Combat Knife, and it hits with a cola bottle, which should trigger the “1 damage ignores armor” effect. However, the target has 2 armor and rolls a 1 on the amor die, which should block one damage. I’m not exactly sure how this should resolve. Should it be:
- One damage gets through, because one gets blocked by armor, and the other one gets through naturally. The armor bypass doesn’t factor in at all. (If the target had rolled a 2 on the armor die then 1 would’ve gotten through because of the bypass)
- One damage gets through because it bypasses armor. The other damage does get blocked by the armor roll.
- Two damage through, because one is unblocked by armor, and the one which should be blocked by armor ignores the armor.
I resolved it the first way - with only one damage getting through. It seemed the most logical to me, but an official explanation would be appreciated!
