May 29 - Open Playtest Changelog

Extra wounds may be scored for each multiple of the Wound Threshold that the inflicted damage exceeds

If the inflicted damaged (less armor) is more than the defender's Wound Threshold, one or more wounds are scored. A wound is scored for each multiple of the of the Wound Threshold that the damage exceeds. For example, against a Wound Threshold of 7, 1 wound is inflicted for every 7 points of damage inflicted at once (so, 14 damage inflicts 2 wounds, 21 damage inflicts 3 wounds, etc.).
