Title: [Sorc] Combat Wiki Posted

Helpful Flowchart for Sorcerer Conflict (http://random.average-bear.com/Sorcerer/HelpfulFlowchartForSorcererConflict)

At least, I hope it's helpful.  I'll try to monitor the combat threads, and modify this in the light of frequent questions and their answers.  If I've made any major mistakes, please advise.

Thanks. Hopefully, it'll help the next time I try to run combat in Sorcerer. The first time was pretty heinous.

A Question on Demons & Damage

In the main rule book, it's declared that when demons get smacked around for (2 x Stamina) damage, they vanish--either forever, or until summoned once more. 

But what happens when a demon takes damage greater than Stamina (but less than twice Stam)?  Can they do the whole "push on through the pain" trick?  I thought that was for sorcerers only.

Yes, I'd wondered about exactly that.

Hello,

Clarification: a demon must take 2X Stamina in lasting damage in order to be killed. For an unBound demon, this means it is Banished. For a Bound demon, this means it is really killed.

Clarification: a demon cannot overcome damage using Will in the way sorcerers can. No one can do this except sorcerers.

Best,
Ron
