p15 of the rules manual defines the conditions in which one has partial LoS. I can't seem to find anywhere saying what partial LoS does. Does it, frex, in any way affect ranged strikes?

I don't have the book with me, but I believe it grants soft cover ([-1] attack flip) to the target.

Partial LoS factors most often for cover. It can/wil come up as referenced by other rules as well. For most games cover will be the main purpose of partial LoS

So if the target doesn't qualify for cover*, partial LoS has no inherent effect?

* I don't have the manual at hand, but IIRC you have to be within 1" of a terrain piece to claim cover from it?

Correct on both counts.
