How do size increases (Firearm Ace) interact with Fatal?


Guns and Gears Playtest General Discussion


I tried searching the forums and could not find an answer. I ask this because I can imagine Firearm Ace and Fatal interacting very often based on Gunslinger's high firearm proficiency bonus.


Pretty sure they don't interact. Ie. The die increase happens before fatal, so the fatal dX stays at the same place,but I could be wrong.

By RAW, dice size increases don't stack, only the higher level one applies, and Firearm Ace increases the weapon's die size, not the die of its fatal trait.

Well, if you're here anyway...

I'd say this is enough of a pitfall that explaining it explicitly in a sidebar isn't a bad idea. And while doing that, it might also be nice to clear up how weapon die size increases work on Two-Hand weapons.
