We do not need that extra hit in there, especially since it's illogical and confusing to most players.
I love how you speak for "most players" and know what confuses them, Inox. Seriously, you cannot make such an assertion.
The extra hit stipulation is no less logical than all the extra stipulations you have for red weapons... if you're trying to keep it simple, why do red weapons get any extra stipulations?
ignores AC 1 & 2 entirely, but the first wound to a limb is always a Light.
Why? because for some reason you don't want them to lose that one hit against studded armor, yet you want them to gain the extra damage to limbs against plate and kill anywhere when wearing no armor.
If you really wanted it simplified, you'd just say the first damaging hit will always do 1 hit, no matter what the weapon type... then you don't need to add any stipulations for reds, they do two hits. It's actually simpler imho and it doesn't allow three leg shots to a plate greeve to be killing blow. In this rule Black weapons would be weakened, because they can't kill to no armor since they'd only do one hit... but I'd rather see that than SUPER POWERFUL RED WEAPONS.
In reality you are adding the one hit rule... but only applying it to red weapons against studded and leather... how is that simplified?
AND you are also making a single spearshot to any unarmored limb mortal...wtf?!
ignore the armor but counts as one hit
Does that seem simpler to everyone?
Sounds like you want your reds and simple too.
I call shananigans! Seriously change that crap and simplify it... for real, without trying to fit red in it's own complex system... making it more powerful all the way around. If not, trust I will be there in Senate to fight it... it sucks that you guys are using the more reasonable ruling as a fall back.
From a country who's biggest one the field asset is their long spears, it really sucks to see you guys pushing red weapons to be so fricken doom in the game, especially with all your obvious influences.
