How do I 'subdue' a monster/player? Ive heard the call before but i'm unsure about the rules? Does it have to be on thea head? Do I have to only strike them once, or the number of hits they can take?

2 Days!

from the rules:

SUBDUE PHYSICAL DAMAGE EFFECT
This damage effect will prevent any damage done by this blow from reducing that location to below
0. Anyone may call Subdue if using a Medium or Small weapon (do not use non-striking surfaces such as
the flat of a blade, or pommel).

Basically you can just call 'Subdue' and it does a none leathal hit, still just does one point of 'temp' damage though.

As above, plus note that you can "subdue" people's limbs as well as the head or torso.

The head should be a last resort OOC as a loc, other than that it is IC often the least armoured.

If you want to keep a prisoner under the RoP, subduing the limbs is the best way, as if you knock them out then eventually the RoP will heal them. The converse of "hammer-to-the-face medicine".


Note that "artefact subdue" from Thor's Hammer may have the "subdue" modified by tutting refs. Eh, Danny?

According to the rules you can do it.

IIRC it was a specific case, back when Danny was Loren (Loran??)

Note the under the ROP all (non artifact damage) has the subdue effect added anyway. Hence you can't take someone to -1 (without trying)

Yes but there are some people around who are immune to it, you mightn't necessarily want to kill them accidentally.
