Default Re: Striking DR 3+ Tough Skin without Hurting Yourself?

That's ok; one of the Boxed Set's design goals was making a simple, standalone game easy to play for newcomers. (And it does a pretty good job at it.)
However, since the rule for hitting DR 3+ from B379 does exist in the Boxed Set, but there is no exception for Tough Skin (which also exists in this ruleset), I'm not sure if it's a design choice or a mistake.
