Greetings,

What happens if you're in a Duel, you have killing blow, and with your attacks you do a combination of killing blow(s) and regular wound(s) on a multi-wound character? Example, said character has 3 wounds, and you roll 4 wounds and a killing blow.

Do you:
a) Resolve the killing blow, and get +4 overkill (Total +7 CR)
or b) Do the wounds first and then killing blow for +2 overkill (Total +5 CR)
or c) Does it matter the order you roll? (anywhere from a total of +5 to +7 CR)

Thanks,

I've always played it that the first killing blow kills them outright, and any additional wounds are counted up overkill - like your example A.

Yep l concur, just think of the extra wounds as you smash them in the face as they lay prone on the floor :)

Regardless of any example the maximum overkill CR is 5. Always remember that.
