6.9 Knockout Attacks

It is possible to attempt to knock another character unconscious rather than killing them. To knock someone out, make a Difficult attack and roll damage as normal, subtracting armor. Compare the damage done against the character’s hit points (total, not current). If the damage is greater than half the character’s normal hit point total, the character is knocked out, with no actual damage being done. If the damage rolled is equal to or less than half the normal hit point total, the attack does minimum possible damage (the lowest the dice can roll, including the minimum strength bonus) in hit points, and the target is not knocked out.
