What happens if the heroes have a 1-hit weapon each but there are monsters that require 2-hits at every location?

There was discussion in the campaign comments about allowing non-lethal damage to stun the monster.

I've been playing where a non-lethal attack toggles the stunned state of the monster. So the first non-lethal attack stuns, the second awakens, and the third kills.

This at least gives me a chance against the demon(s) when I'm wandering around with a basic sword.

Ooh, I like that mechanic. Gives a bit more on the decision making: I have 3 actions. I hit the demon on the first try and stun it. Do I now press my luck and try to hit it two more times, or let sleeping monsters lie?
I'm going to give this a try next time.
Thanks,

Yeah, we are looking into non-lethal attacks stunning monsters if they hit, and so far it's been working really well So we will probably add this to the final game. For now, I encourage you to use this rule.

I have the final game from KS and have tried to play my first game solo. However I'm a bit stuck on how to kill a monster with 3 hit points when I have 2 single-handed weapons equipped that do 1 damage each. I rolled dice that meant both weapons hit, but for a total of 2 damage.

So how can I ever kill the monster? There doesn't seem to be any mention of a stun rule in the final game.

Yes, partial damage = stun did not apparently make the final rules. Whether this was an oversight, or playtesting showed it to make encounters too easy is unknown at this point.

I'd say play with the rule outlined above if it makes the game more fun for you.

Personnally, the warhammer is my basic weapon everytime. Its versatility makes it impossible to stay blocked forever.

You can dual wield also. Mace + any other one-handed weapon = 3 damage.(1 action). Mace is basic so you can start with it. Karrek can start the game dealing 3 damage.
