Rules Questions

Energy Attacks

Energy attacks deal half damage to most objects. Divide the damage by 2 before applying the object’s hardness. Some energy types might be particularly effective against certain objects, subject to GM discretion. For example, fire might do full damage against parchment, cloth, and other objects that burn easily. Sonic might do full damage against glass and crystal objects

Greetings,

If a Caster sends a Fireball in a room, where a BOOK is laid out on a wooden table, the table & book would take the fireball damage (probably 100% of it and not even half).

In any case, what happens if the Fireball is converted into a "cold" ball (ie. dealing cold damage)

Or if you send a SONIC attack which happens to hit the tablke + book?

Can a table or a book even be damaged by a Sonic attack?

Was there any clarifications on this Energy Attack vs Objs rule?

THANKS for your help!

I figure sonic should deal full damage to a table (and probably nothing to a book).


<<Some energy types might be particularly effective against certain objects>>

But what about the other way around?
Wouldn't cold/sonic attacks have little effects on Wood and metal!?

Isn't there anything in the rules more precise on this topic!?!
