    I feel like it's good for some AoE and not others. For grenades, I think it's okay for them to not completely ignore Armor at all times, maybe just ignoring it if the target has an unarmored location, but for a flamethrower fire kinda slips through the cracks.

    Unless there is a reason to specifically rule AOE bypasses non-sealed armor all this rule would do is ensure everyone walks around with a dozen grenades and just skip the firearms. After all, I can still get a raise on the damage and I get to ignore (most) armor. IMO, not a good idea.

    Flamethrowers specifically state that armor protects normally, a change from previous.

    SWADE, Area Effect, and Ignoring Armor

    I don't know if this is just something that I missed reading through the PDF or not, but there isn't any mention of Area Effect weapons bypassing non-sealed armor; is that intentional? I feel like no amount of medieval armor or kevlar is going to help much against a flamethrower (especially the latter, which only protects the torso).
Working...
