I've got a character with bone lacing. I can understand how a really hard skeleton can be used as a deadly weapon, but I can't find an option allowing a character with a bone lacing (or a sword, or another weapon which can make physycal damages when used as normal, but could be used differently to make stun damages) to stun an opponent.
The only option I see is, assuming my character has the choice, making an attack without using the Bone lacing advantages, and then just apply the [Str/2], but I don't even know if I'm allowed to do this. It sounds logic to me, but…

So, is there any rule which allows a character to make stun damages with a usually letal weapon ? or can my character just ignore his bone lacing if he want to stun ?

In D&D you just announced you were using subdual damage. in teh case of laced bones i would say an open palm could be used. Palms are padded somewhat over bare knuckles.

I agree with Udda. The clenched fist without Bone Lacing is Stun and when you lace it turns it to Physical. If you state you are doing subdual it changes it back to Stun. Same for Clubs, Pistol Butts etc etc.

No malus, no conditions ? I just say "I go for stun instead of physical", I keep the same DV, and it works ?
It's cool for me, but since stun monitors are usually shorter than physical monitors, isn't it unbalanced ?
Then I will always do stun damages.

I would probably give you a negative modifier to your dice pool because you would have to be a bit more careful.

Good point. Because the character is holding back. ;)

Something like the "called shot" modifier (-4), or vicious blow maneuver modifier (-2) maybe ?
