## Attack

If the Weapon Value is null, then no attack is performed.

The sequences of an attack are:

• #### Hit Probability:

• The Hit Probability is calculated and limited to [0; 30].
• If a random number ∈ [0; 31] is <= to the Hit Probability, then the Attacker hits the Target (there's always 1/32 chance to miss).
• #### Initial Weapon Damage:

The Weapon Damage is calculated by adding two random numbers ∈ [0; Weapon Value]:

• Weapon Damage = Random (0, Weapon Value) + Random (0, Weapon Value)
• #### Special Attack:

If the Weapon Type is Sword or Dagger and a random number ∈ [0; 255] is < to the Hit Probability (maximum probability of 15/128), then if the Target Armor Value is:

• null, then a random number ∈ [0; 10] is added to the Weapon Damage (Message #1).
• > to 0, then the Target Armor Value will be avoided (null for this Attack) (Message #2).
• #### Weapon Resistance:

If the Break Probability is verified, then the Weapon breaks (Message #5 and #6):

• The Weapon Value is set to 0 for a Sword, 2 for a Dagger.
• The Weapon is set to Not Poisoned.
• The Weapon Skill is kept.
• #### Armor Absorption:

The Weapon Damage is reduced by the Target Armor Value:

• Weapon Damage -= Target Armor Value
• #### Weapon Poisoning (if the Weapon is Poisoned):

• If the Weapon Damage isn't null, then the Weapon Damage is increased by a random number ∈ [0; 8].
• If the Weapon is Temporary Poisoned, there's a probability of 1/3 that the Weapon Poisoned is unset.
• #### Target Hit:

The Weapon Damage is limited to [0, 31]. If the Weapon Damage is > to 0, then the Attacker has hurt the Target by the amount of the Weapon Damage, else the Target has absorbed all the damage.
