Question about Mephit (Ice Mephit, Fire Mephit and more)

Hi,

My friend and me come back to play DDM1.0 and we have a questioning with some creature.

For example Ice Mephit, Breath Weapon says:

  • Breath Weapon [][] (Replaces attacks: cone; 10 cold damage + Freeze);
  • Freeze (Inhibited for 1 turn; DC 12)

And Air Mephit, Breath Weapon says:

  • Breath Weapon [][] (Replaces attacks: cone, 10 damage + push affected creatures 1 square; DC 12);

The question is, on Ice Mephit does the DC of freeze apply to breath damage? On save is half-damage ?

Thx for your help Smile

Hello Spike,

Save is successful- 5 damage and no effect (both mephits)
Save is No Good- 10 damage and effect (both mephits).

Page 5 errata (I added the emphasis on the relevant part):
Saves for Damage in addition to Other Effects:
Some spells and special abilities (such as unholy blight and Whirlwind Blast) deal damage as well as produce other
effects. A creature that successfully saves against such an effect takes half damage (or no damage when indicated by the
effect) and does not suffer the additional effect.

V1 is awesome, but a lot of running away compared to V2 ;o)
Best regards,
GTH
