What is the rule of thumb for acid damage. I would not treat it as a
poison with a POT, but rather as a kind of fire. My current take - for a
strongish acid - is treat as large fire - 1D12 damage (large fire is 2D6 I
think). I also have ruled that armour can reduce damage, but due to acids
corrosive nature, if damage greater than AP of affected piece of armour,
it will reduce AP - like the AP of a weapon being reduced.
