Overwhelming Rule

Overwhelming damage is calculated differently than via the normal rules. Instead of taking the higher of your weapon's overwhelming tag or your essence, use this method:

- Start with the overwhelming score of your weapon (1 if no tag).

- If your essence score is higher than the essence score of your target, add the difference of your essence scores to your weapon's overwhelming score.

Since i'll always be the one rolling damage, you won't have to worry about this calculation. Basically what this does is make weapon overwhelming scores relevant when you reach high essence scores, instead of fading into obscurity. It also makes weapon overwhelming scores a more important attribute when choosing a weapon. In addition, it cuts down the very high minimum damage rolls that are achieved with high essence scores. This is to discourage ping-spamming and to put my mind at ease.
