Still getting used to the game, and now with two investigators, it's going smoother for us.

Question: if both an Ally and a Weapon provide the same skill bonus, do they stack?

For Weapons: from what I understand, when using multiple weapons, I elect one to provide the highest modifier, but can I activate the special ability of each of my weapons during a single Combat Encounter?

He may use one effect that provides a bonus..... If multiple effects provide a bonus, he uses only the highest bonus.

You can however activate any special abilities from as many cards as are applicable ie ones that do not add "+x[skill]" to your dice pool.

Edited for clarity.

Just for clarity's sake, you can only use one bonus of the form "+X [Skill]". If, say, you have a weapon that gives +2 [Strength] and are playing Jim Culver, you would add 3 dice to your Strength value, 2 for the weapon and 1 for Jim's passive ability.
