Which is sort of related to Durak's question. We are playing in the same game group and my character has a spear "unreliable 2" also. So I have a vested interest in this
My question is this.
WFRP3 has some very specific wording in certain areas that applies very specific criteria to an action.
Unreliable is written in such a way that it is not implicit that actions using an unreliable weapon get an additional effect line that triggers on X chaos stars.
it states that
it is the same for non-black powder but I've edited for brevity.
Do people read this as meaning those Chaos Stars are consumed in the act of triggering the unreliable quality
ie. The action used essentially has an extra line added reading (assuming unreliable 2)
<Chaos Star><Chaos Star> The weapon explodes dealing 2 damage to the wielder.
or is it an additional effect that occurs "on top" of what would otherwise be triggered by the Chaos Stars.
I seem to recall a few instances where symbols trigger multiple effects.
If it is a triggering effect that uses the symbols up in the act of triggering.. well I'd be able to avoid ever triggering it by just choosing a different Chaos star effect for on or both of the starts and voila my supposedly unreliable weapon doesn't break/blow up.
