> hmm... how DOES 5D4 work as a damage code?
Very simple: the weapon does a base damage of Deadly, and the TN to resist
it is 5. So far, this is exactly as in SRII. The "4" at the end means that
every _four_ successes stage the damage up or down by one level, instead
of every two as in SRII.
For example, if you roll 6 successes against the 5D4 damage, you take a
Serious wound -- in SRII, 5D with 6 successes means Light.
This "variable staging," as it's called, makes it more difficult to stage
the damage up, but also more difficult to stage things down. Explosive
rounds gave +2 Staging in SR1, not +1 Power as they do in SRII, and so
were a lot more hazardous to your health.
