We had a question in our game last night that didn't seem to have a clear resolution in the manual.
So if you have an effort of two and are splitting it between attack and damage (one point to lower the difficulty of the attack and one to raise the damage) what is the cost from the related pool? (5 or 6)
We know that additional points spent on the same task only cost 2, but there was some question as to attack and damage being different "Tasks".
There was a secondary question--when you split effort, can edge still apply to both, but I think we resolved that as "No".
I use Onslaught and have an effort of 5 and an intellect edge of 5. I choose to use 1 effort on attack and 1 on damage.
Onslaught costs 1 point of int, but I don't use edge here because it's only 1 point--so cost 1 point.
I decide to apply 1 level of effort to attack this costs 3 points of int, and I apply my edge making it free (and wasting two points of edge)--0 points cost
I also apply 1 level of effort to damage and can't use edge so it costs me--this is the question, does it cost me 2 or 3?
And therefore is the total cost 3 points or 4, or did we get something else wrong?
