Does Toughen have any sort of advantage over Protection From Normal Weapons? I don't see what it could be, unless "prevents" means "reduces the odds of hitting".

I'm no Abe, but based on the description, I would guess Toughen would work against magical weapons as well as non-magical ones.

But Toughen still allows them to hit you. Whereas with Protection from Normal Weapons you don't get hit at all. A poisoned weapon might still hit you in the second case.

I like how it's called DII. It's like Dungeon games have their own Roman numeral system.

Ill be happy to discuss this more detail


Suppose your enemy has a normal flail. With Toughen, you would take 2 damage per hit (the minimum allowed damage). With Pro from Non Magic weapons, you wouldn't take anything.

Now, suppose they have a +1 magic flail. Toughen only gets 3 damage through, and Pro prevents nothing, thus allowing 1d6+2 damage in.

Toughen and pro only works on weapons, so spells, breaths, fire, acid, and other things will not be reduced. Also, if a weapon is poisoned and strikes you, you won't take the physical damage, but the poison damage, if any, won;t be reduced by either of these spells.

Abe, reading the Party section, it describes the party as being able to gang up on monsters. How will group combat be determined? Is it like last game where the players take on the monster one at a time, starting with the lowest level? Or do they attack as a group?
