Default New Slam Rules

Does Enhanced Block add to the shield DB for a Shield Slam?

I'm assuming Refplace means the Slam rules in the DFRPG boxed set.

I doubt Enhanced Block would affect a Shield Slam... it only gives a bonus to the actual Shield skill, it doesn't make the shield bigger. :)

You mean to the block score, but yeah, otherwise, this.

Is that so?
I can move the thread if it's meant to be about DFRPG.

Yeah I meant to post in the other forum. Though it may include too much non DF stuff to fit there.
Thanks for the answers there in line with what I thought but this means a Shield Mount wont work the same.
I think adding Cosmic should address that.

So is it meant to be moved or not? Your reply seems at least somewhat ambiguous to me.

It was ambiguous as I was leaving it up to your discretion.
DOnt recall if Enhanced Defenses were part of the DFRPG if so it should be moved. If not it goes into things that might add confusion.

I don't have DFRPG at this point and am not sure whether I ever will, so I don't know.

Enhanced Block is a thing in DFRPG, so I guess this thread belongs to the other subforum.

The advantage only gives a bonus to the Block defense roll (which is far more restricted than DB), I see no reason why it would affect Slam damage.
