Sprain? Maybe add the stipulation that attempted use of the 'stun' crippled limb could cause /actual/ damage to the limb.

EDIT: Though actually, what would have stopped stun damage from crippling limbs temporarily before? Stun damage is still damage in the sense that you can target specific body parts.

Does stun damage translate to limb damage? If so, then Shaking Off stun damage wouldn't effect limb health.

I don't want to try just giving stun damage extra limb damage, because that's supposed to be represented by the amount of natural stun DT.

While we're on the subject, is regular DT added to stun DT or is stun DT the only defense against stun damage?

[Edit: Separating DT and Stun DT would make stun damage less forgiving, and might make certain clothing/armour more desirable; I can see sport and riot gear having more stun DT.]

I'd assume stun damage would be able to translate to limb damage, the same way illusory damage could, just by virtue of being damage with a special modifier attached.

I think at some point the question of whether normal DT is added to stun DT was brought up. I /thought/ this was outlined in the rules doc somewhere but apparently it either isn't or I can't find it, so I can't say for certain.

The one place I can find it mentioned is in the rules for Lightning Kick, where it states:
The lightning bolt deals electrical Stun damage equal to (10 + 1d10) * (Flight Rank), resisted by Stun DT and reduced by Lightning Resistance.

So we know Lightning is only resisted by Stun DT. There is no mention if this is the norm for stun damage, or just in this instance.

It's there in a few more spots than that, but there's no section on how stun damage works in and of itself, only specific ways it ties into other mechanics.

Well, if it's up for a vote, I vote that Stun Damage is only resisted by Stun DT.

And also that players can spend AP to "Shake Off" Stun Damage (1 AP per 1 Stun Damage up to their END*2 a turn, player character must not be pinned or otherwise immobile).

So, I found the lack of chem crafting frustrating. I started working on this a couple days ago in order to use with a character I had in mind. Keep in that this is not quite finished. Just wanted to get some feedback on it so far. Hivana's Chem Crafting

edit: Fixed the link

Also, because of the effects of a few of the chems, I felt it necessary to add some unique components for their production.

Does anyone know if you can still benefit from permanent effects from zebra potions if you have implants?
