penetrating

I think I am confused with penetrating. EX I have a blast of 4d6 and I roll 3,2,4,6 and my opponent has a pd of 8. How much damage do I do to him? (6th edition)

 

Thanks

The easiest way to figure out the damage from a normal penetrating attack is to count the body rolled.  That is the minimum amount of stun the target takes no matter how high his defenses are.  If the regular damage is higher than the minimum the target takes the regular damage.   

 

For a killing attack it is slightly different.  In that case you count the amount of body you would have done (before defense) if the attack was a normal attack.  That is the minimum amount of body the target takes.  Again if the regular damage is higher than the minimum damage the target takes the regular damage.  The stun multiplier is handled as normal, but the target like normal you take at least 1 stun per body taken.  

 

So as Grailknight said you take 7 stun 0 body.  But you take a minimum of 5 stun no matter how high your defenses are.  If the attack had been a killing attack and the defense were resistant you would have taken 7 body.  If you had 15 points or higher of resistant def you would take 5 body.
