Pulling Punches

This has been covered under Holding One's Fire but bears repeating: It is possible to inflict less damage than maximum for some attacks, and it is possible to select a lower effect than the color rolled for other attacks. Attack forms where reduced damage is available are Blunt Attacks, Blunt Throwing, Energy Powers, Force Powers, and Grappling and any form of attack that uses the magic code phrase "inflicts up to a certain level of damage." Attack forms where it is possible to have lesser effects than found on the Universal Table (for example, lessening a Stun to a Slam) are Blunt Attacks, Force Powers, Energy Powers, Grappling, and Charging.
