You can use the Stray shots optional rule from p248. GMs keen on reinforcing the merciless nature of the 41st Millennium may rule that if a character shooting into a melee combat misses his target by a small margin (one degree of failure or less), the attack instead hits another target engaged in the same melee. The GM might also rule that ...

I don't think there is a RAW without a bit of interpretation here. My interpretation of the RAW (which makes it RAI) would be that "All languages" means all skills that have language in their name, for example Speak Language (Eldar) If Rogue Trader is having an extra skill for things that are not "Speak Language", then it is not supposed to be a ...

By default, a character reduces incoming Damage by an amount equal to his Toughness Bonus. Armour can also help further reduce Damage. If the source of the Damage struck a ...

The system sort of really hangs on that Toughness and armor. That means the damage is only done when you have removed those factors. e.g., Takedown won't work if the Power Armor stops all. The idea is of the armor is also sort of the strength of the game. If we look to a similar game (Dark Heresy 2.0 page 132) Tier: 1 Prerequisite: None Aptitudes: ...

For Deathwatch such a rule does indeed exist. On page 245 if the Core Rule Book 'Step Four: Attacker Determines Damage' It says: 'For all attack rolls, count the Degrees of Success. The number of Degrees of Success is the minimum amount of Damage that attack will inflict on a single dice. If the attack influcts more than one dice of Damage, the player may ...
