Damage Field+Natural Weapons

#1 Postby tigerguy786 » Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:08 pm

Could the damage from Damage Field and say a Rakashan's Natural claws stack? IE would tbe damage from a Rakashan attacking with his claws while the damage field up do Str+d6, Str+2d6, or Str+3d6? (not worrying about raises for the moment)

I would lean towards Str+3d6, because the claws and the damage field are still doing damge (depending on trappings of course, but generally I think that will be the case). It isn't like Brass Knuckles where the damage there replaces the damage of the fists.

Yep, it stacks with natural weapons.
