Building on this question about attack/defence:
My players have decided that dog-piling one opponent at a time is the way to go in hand to hand combat. So using the example of Katarina and her 3 attackers from the core rules, let's call the attackers Tom, Dick and Harry.
- Katarina attacks Tom and chooses not to split her dice pool. They Both roll attack rolls.
- Katarina therefore gets no defence against Dick.
- And Katarina gets no defence against Harry.
Question: What is the Difficulty for Dick and Harry to hit Katarina?
If it was a Surprise Attack, it would be Difficulty 1. But this is after any surprise round has been and gone. Still Difficulty 1? Difficulty 0?
(And yes, I know that the PCs who are dogpiling Katarina will get no defence against another NPC attacking them. They seem willing to take that risk!).
