  • Wound Conditions and Wounds in General

    It's really aggravating that the Scion books mention injury conditions but only have 3 for each type. Does anyone have any ideas for ones that are mentioned like "Cut" or "Bleeding Out"?

    Also, I'm a little confused on the wording of the "lethal" and "bruising" tags. So, can lethal weapons only do injury or higher wounds? Then why would a weapon ever not be lethal? Why does lethal have the same tag cost as bruising?

    The idea is DIY! You should create your own and when needed say the injury applies or not (when it apply you gain a momentum). Be creative.
    There is a great material in the nexus to help you with the conditions.

    Not really, you can do any level of damage with either tag. The idea is more narrative, if you use a bruising weapon to take the target out you probably won’t kill them, just knock out, but with a lethal weapon you probably can kill when take them out.
    You can also say a bruise injury will heal a little faster than a lethal one, but again, up to the Storyguide.

      While not really hard coded into the game, the idea of bashing vs. lethal weapons is that they deal different kinds of Injuries (even if neither is better or worse).

      Bashing weapons tend to do broad "shock" based injuries that have smaller but more wide ranging penalties. If you smash someone in the head with a baseball bat, the concussion leaves them dizzy and uncoordinated; affecting most actions they try to take.

      Lethal weapons tend to do more focused injuries that are worse, but more situational. If you stab your enemy in the hand, anything that requires that hand will be hit with a big penalty, but anything they can do one handed (or no handed like kicking you) will be unaffected.
