A minor grip but why do you call this Attributes Power ?

The icon and the fact that you use it against armor really make me think about Penetration rather that Power.

In our games we always refer to it as Penetration.

I often slip up and call this stat Penetration too. Lots of attacks don't really "penetrate" though, as such. Like when unarmed Beowulf hits an unarmored target you don't really check to see if his fist penetrates their clothing.

My gaming experience has trained me to call it Penetration though, definitely.

Beowulf penetrates unarmamored targets zone of personal space.
Crushing the average 18 inches.

I call it that. Too.

It was called "Penetration" in the first, why would I relearn it to be power? Well as it turns out I wouldn't.
