Physical relates two connected mechanics:
- An Attack Type.
- A Resistance.
Physical Attack TypeEdit
Physical moves use tangible force against an opponent to damage them. This could be anything ranging from striking with an arrow, to punching with a fist. Psyching yourself up to get adrenaline flowing or hiding behind a tree.
Physical resistance is the measure of how thick a character's armour is, or how well they can deflect punches or sword thrusts. The higher a character's Physical resistance, the less damage they take from opponent's physical type attacks.
Every Character has a set Physical resistance, also known as physical defense, ranging from 0 to 10. A character's Physical resistance is shown both on the reverse of it's card, or in the top corner of the screen above the active character as shown below.
Cain Solomon has 3 Physical Resistance.
To work out the damage caused by an attack against an opponent, you can use the following simple formula:
Total damage = ( Physical type attack's damage - Opponent's physical resistance ) x Number of swings in the attack
