Puny Trait

Unread postby zarthas » Fri Dec 04, 2015 8:02 pm

Great trait with flavor and game mechanics, but I'm not entirely sure how its meant to be used in building profiles.

Would it make sense to use it for non-warrior specialist type characters? Would it fit in to say, a 'Wizard' kind of character, who is a weak and unskilled hand to hand fighter?

Also, does the change to the damage against Prone opponents affect only Melee attacks, or does it affect Ranged attacks as well?

I am thinking of using it mostly for weak wizards, children, and some fey creatures like sprites. It can also represent a creature that is a good fighter but does not have a lot of musclepower.
Ranged attacks have no advantage against Puny.

Okay, lets say I have a Puny Halfling Archer. He's firing at a Prone Bugbear 1 Short away.


Under the Puny trait it states:
"When a Puny model attacks a Prone opponent, its attack is at +1, not +2, and it is not Lethal."

Under the Prone rules it states:
"Ranged attacks have no modifier. Attacks that double a Prone character inflict Gruesome Deaths."

So in this scenario, what would beating his opponent's roll do? Would it be a kill? Or would he need to double his opponent's roll?

It would normally kill on beating, no need tio double, just like any other character.
The idea is that Puny characters cannot take full advantage of prone targets in melee
