I'm sorry to post quite a basic question.

According to page 70 of the rulesbook you perform a melee attack roll by rolling 2D6 and adding the result of the roll to the MEL statistic.

So if something refers to the melee attack roll, does it refer to the result of the 2D6 roll, or to the total of the 2D6 and the MEL statistic?

To the total, if no special rule states otherwise.

The discussion came up because of the special rule of the weapon from the Lighteater. (I don't have the rulebook with me, so page numbers and correct names will follow.) The special rule says that the Lighteater always hits on a melee attack roll of 7+. With a MEL stat of 6 that would mean that only a double 1 because that would be a fumble would miss. Debuffs are not considered of course.

We have the feeling that it is maybe meant that the dice have to show the 7+ but the "melee attack roll" is clearly defined.

Hi Till,

Good point! I guess that´s a wording error here... The melee attack roll is defined as "2D6 + MEL". So the rule of the Lighteater is stated incorrectly, because it was meant to say that the 2D6 need the 7+. I think what needs to be added is that the dice roll of the melee attack roll has to be 7+. I will note that for an errata!
