If a Firebelly Newt shoots and rolls sword + cheese, what happens to the cheese?

* Is the target set on fire without taking initial damage?
or
* Is that cheese added to the wheel?
or
* Is that cheese completely ignored?

The target is set on fire, and no damage is done.

(Also, no defense is rolled by the target because no hits were rolled.)

With any attack/defense roll, the cheese and the damage (if any) are seperate things that don't depend on each other.
When normally all cheese rolled would go to the cheese wheel, with the newts one of them will instead set the target on fire.

Right, the literal wording leads to this conclusion (and I was actually thankful for being set on fire rather than triggering a Surge, during the last scene of Chapter 2-B). But I wasn't sure if there was errata about this only happening on a successful attack and couldn't find anything.

(It's been a few months since I picked up the game and I was hobbling through the basic rules as well; good to see you're still here, Teeka)

You're welcome! I'll gladly answer any questions, no matter how long it's been since the game came out.

I've also had a few times where the fire effect actually saved me from a surge, by the way. That's why usually the newts are my last targets (first are those damn frogs...).

And sometimes the second... and then the third... and then the fourth... and then the "WOULD YOU STOP JUMPING OUT OF THE WAY!!!"
