Wounds and difficulty increase

Hello there, a newbie question about Wounds. It is not entirely clear about how much difficulty increase Wounds impose upon characters. Is it +1 difficulty per Wound?

I understood that yes. For each harm, the related tests see their difficulty increased by 1. I don’t have the rulebook there, but affected tests depend whether physical or mental harm.

Edit : found it, p 119-120.

Edit : correcting page number.

Thank you. Tried finding it in the book but there was no mention of an exact number, but it sounds most logical to have it per Wound.

@Christoffer As Fredowulf mentioned it is on Page 119.

Each Harm increases the Difficulty of all affected skill tests: each type of damage inflicting Harm affects different tests by one Difficulty step.

By the way, don’t forget that PCs and Nemeses can decide not to suffer the difficulty increase of a certain type of Harms for one scene for the price of 1 Fortune point (they are still permanently disabled if they take 5 Harms of the same type).

Super thanks! I must have somehow skipped that part during my 3 previous read-throughs :grin:

Don’t forget there’s a cap of 5 difficulty too.
