  1. Note that it only subtracts from damage if the fiction allows for it — I would say absolutely mitigates a sword’s damage, but may or may not help out with a magic spell depending on how and what its cast at.

  2. Yes, and if it doesn’t have the tag, it necessarily doesn’t ignore armour. Wizard and Cleric spells are designed to be mostly balanced; they don’t get to start automatically ignoring armour just because they’re spells, is what I’m saying.
