The Lightning Bolt and Ball Lightning spells both have their damage type listed as P for Physical (as opposed to S for Stun, such as Knockout). However, the rules also state (emphasis mine):
These spells create and direct vicious strikes of electricity that cause Electricity damage (p. 154).
We thumb over to page 154 for Electricity damage, which states (emphasis mine):
Electrical damage is treated as Stun damage and resisted with half Impact armor (rounded up) - metallic armor, however, offers no protection.
After playing other game systems, it seems strange that Lightning Bolt would cause Stun damage instead of Physical damage.
Is there any official ruling that Lightning Bolt/Ball Lightning causes Physical damage, and this is a case of specific rule (the spell) overriding the general rule (Electrical damage)? Or is this a typo in the spell profile, and these spells really do cause Stun damage? Or is there at least a general consensus on how to handle this?
