It's not. Let me give you an example:

Quote from: SAMPLE BATTLE SCENE
Kållgert the mutant fox is being bullied by two brigadists (xenophobic gangsters, members of the anti-mutant pro-human Nimrod Brigade) in the backstreets of Hindenburg. Fortunately Kållgert is a rather experienced fox, and knows how to use his two .45S pistols better than most - and the ruffians only have lead pipes and big bodies to back themselves up.

Being a sly, fast fox Kållgert draws his guns quickly (won the initiative) and fires at one of the ruffians with his right gun. His Pistol skill is 69%, and he makes his d100 roll - 45. He hits. Rolling a d6 for targeting, he gets a 6 - headshot. Then he rolls 2d8 for damage, and lands a 7 and an 8 - 15 damage right to the head of the ruffian.
As the ruffian is a burly type with a sturdy physique he manages to avoid dying on the spot from the wound (His total HP is his Size plus Physique, 15+14=29) the damage still exceeds his Trauma Threshold (total HP/2=14, rounded down). Thus he suffers a critical injury to the head, knocking him out instantly and probably giving him severe damage that only with good luck can be restored to normal.

One ruffian out for the count, he decides to try his luck on the second one as well. Since this is his second offensive action during the same turn, he gets a -25% modifier on it; added to that he has to use his offhand skill for Pistol, which only has a value of 40% (offhand skills such as Left Hand Pistol count as Trained rather than Natural, and are purchased separately). He thus has to roll 15 or less to hit. He rolls a d100 and gets 29 - a miss. The remaining ruffian is not quite as cocky anymore however, as his mate was clocked for good (or so it seems at least) in one shot - and thus he runs off screaming. Kållgert walks off smiling smugly. Another day for the Lion!


Pretty simple. It's just that it can get pretty intricate when you do many things at the same time. ^^
