QuoteTopic: How did I miss this? (link)Post by: Ron Edwards on September 27, 2004, 10:17:41 AMHello,Good question - my reasoning at the time was that Armor protects against allimpact, clawing, kinetic attacks; and that Protection protects against all fire,chemical, radiation, and pyschic attacks. Any other attack concept should befarmed into one of these categories, or perhaps a category that both abilitieswill protect against. I didn't want to have any conceivable attack that was notprotected against by at least one of these abilities.Any Champions veteran will see the influence there, although Protectioncombines Ego Defense with Energy Defense.Today, I wonder whether I should have just had the one ability "Protection" andthen permitted customization. Although it seems to me that that constructionwould have led to far more reader-confusion than the current one does.
QuoteProtection:...The type of attack it defends against must be defined at the outset.
Quote from: Paiku on August 05, 2010, 11:42:50 PMI took this entry in the rulebook to mean that, when I'm spec'ing the demon, I have to specify one type of special damage against which it gets Protection. If I want a Demon that's protected against two types of Special Damage, then I have to take Protection twice.
