Or perhaps search the site for questions that may already have been answered before asking them over, because as it turns out, I don't keep track of everything I say on this thread. Thanks for pointing out my self-contradiction and giving me further evidence that I shouldn't be answering rules questions here, I guess.James Jacobs wrote:Nakteo wrote:You need to determine the total amount of damage the robot WOULD take before applying hardness and electricity resistance. So once the damage is determined, first thing you do is apply the vulnerability effect to get the total damage. Hardness and resistance kick in after that.
A party is attacking a robot. Said robot has Hardness 10, ER Electricity 20, and a force field with 10 remaining hit points. Said robot, being a robot, also has Electricity Vulnerability. The party wizard throws a lightning bolt at it for 60 points of damage (pre-vulnerability), robot fails its reflex save.
In what order do the robot's vulnerability and various resistances apply, and which of said resistances do and do not stack?
You are aware that this is the opposite of an answer you gave before, right? :) (Using fire at that time). Vulnerability only applies if you actually take the damage!
So I should open a thread in the Rules Questions forum instead of asking followup questions? :)
