If you do not meet the Strength requirement for armour, you make all Agility challenge rolls with 1 bane and suffer from -2 Speed. In addition, all Strength challenge rolls to swim are at 1 bane if wearing light armour, 2 banes if wearing medium armour and 3 banes if wearing heavy armour.

 

Extra Damage inflicted by Size 2 or greater Creatures

Instead of the rules in SotDL, unarmed strikes increase in damage from a base of 1 to 1d3, weapons dealing less than 1d6 increase to a base of 1d6 and all weapons dealing 1d6 or more usually increase by 1d6 damage. For example, a Size 2 creature with Strength 13 does an unarmed strike of damage 1d3+1 (instead of 2), dagger damage of 1d6+1 instead of 1d3+1, and sword damage of 2d6+2 instead of 1d6+2.
