So I just bought the beginners box and started reading through the books in order, and came across some very weird formulations regarding engaged range difficulties.
I then tried to look it up in the rulebook, but that just added to the confusion.
So in the adventure book it states that attacking in engaged range has 2 difficulty die for brawl, melee and ranged(light) weapons. Then there's a full stop, and it says "add 2 difficulty dice". Without any further explanation to what and why adds those 2 dice.
Looking at the rulebook it then says that engaged range is a 1 difficulty attack with modifiers for weapon, under it it then says ranged(light) adds 1 difficulty, but that's the only example.. There's nothing for vibroweapons, clubs or the like..
So what IS the difficulty for using brawl and melee weapons in engaged range, and what about ranged(light).. What about Ranged(medium) if any such exists (haven't read end to end yet)..
My guess is that combat in engaged range is 2 difficulty - no matter if you brawl, melee or shoot a light weapon.. For a heavy weapon it's 5 difficulty, and for anything in between it's 4 difficulty.
