Effects Results: Slam, Stun, Kill

Most effects of combat are covered in the sections describing that form of attack. Several combat forms share the Slam, Stun, and Kill results. They are explained herein.

For any 1 of these 3 results to be effective on a target, the attacker must inflict some damage on the target. If the character's Body Armor, force field, or natural invulnerabilities prevent the form of attack from hurting the character, then the effects of the Slam, Stun, or Kill are negated.

Note: In borderline cases where the sum total of the attacker's damage is balanced by the target's defenses, such that 1 more point is needed to affect the target, the target may be affected by Slams, Stuns, and Kills.
