I was rereading BWG in preparation to run my first game, and I noticed an oddity regarding the generating of Mortal Wound (Pg. 90) and Superficial Wound (Pg. 98). If you assume that the Shade of your Forte is conserved when calculating your Superficial Wound (the way Shades are conserved generally) and you have a Grey Forte (and only a Grey Forte), you end up with a Superficial Wound to the right of your Mortal Wound on the PTGS. I think the obvious, common-sense solution is to make the Superficial Wound Shade the same as the Mortal Wound Shade, but it was something that caught my eye, and I got curious. Am I wrong on any of this? Is there anything I’m missing from the book or should know from somewhere else? What do you folks think?
Here’s an example for clarity:
If you have a B4 Power and a G2 Forte, you get a B10 Mortal Wound - That’s (4 + 2 + 2[For Grey Shade]/2) + 6, Black because Black is the darkest ability involved. Your Superficial Wound is G2 - That’s 2/2 +1, Grey because Forte is Grey. G2 is equal to B18 in the PTGS.
