I was hoping you could help clear up some confusion. With the following:
For the warrior description on page 7
"Unless the player specifies otherwise, damage will be shared out among all opponents within melee distance (10 feet), beginning with the weakest target."
Then on combat page 26 "2) Unless the player specifies otherwise, damage is dealt first to the weakest opponent in melee with the attacker. If that opponent is killed, remaining damage is shared out to the next weakest opponent and so forth until all damage rolled has been inflicted to opponents within melee distance (10 feet)."
So does that mean that the following:
"damage is dealt first to the weakest opponent in melee with the attacker. If that opponent is killed, remaining damage is shared out to the next weakest opponent and so forth "
So this applies to anyone not just warriors? To me it would seem that way as from what I can gather in O&D and chainmail that all characters got multiple attacks based on thier fighting capability.
All classes can spread thier damage rolls onto another enemies they are capable of hitting (per the results of the attack roll) that are within 10 feet of them, provided the first target is killed. Damage can go from A to B to C if A and B are killed and on to D if C is killed etc.. Untill all damage points are used up or there are no more enemies in melee distance.
The difference with the Warrior is that a warrior can make another attack roll if they kill all the initial targets, ad infinitum to any enemy within 20 feet. So a roll that kills A,B,C and D allows the warrior to roll again to get E and F who were behind the other four, lets say.

Yes it does. It was just confusing at first since it was listed writtenunder warrior also. So it wokrs like I thought with the damage spread for everyone, but only the warrior gets the re roll to those within 20 feet.
