Crusaders (ToB) and DR.


First Post
If a Crusader (ToB:Bo9S) uses his Delay Damage ability, does DR go into effect once or twice?

An enemy hits a Crusader (who has DR 2/Adamantine) for 10 damage with a weapon that doesn't bypass his DR, and the Crusader delays 5 points of damage until the next round. which of the following is the most likely answer?

1) Crusader takes 3 damage in round one, and 3 damage in round two.
2) Crusader takes 3 damage in round one, and 5 damage in round two.
3) Some other answer that I can't think of right now. (Explain below, please.)

Thanks for the help. I'm sending this to CustServ as well, just wanted to get the gathered forum's take on it.

We play it as option two. Basically DR goes into effect before delay damage. You don't take 10 damage, you take 8. That's my 2cp anyway.

Yep, the Crusader takes 8 damage and delays 5 of it.

You're not splitting the damage into two attacks (one now and one later), you're just delaying part of the attack's damage. You took 8 points this round, you just won't feel 5 points of it until next round.

That was my inclination as well, but there was a rather (ok, semi-) convincing argument from one of the players in the group. Still waiting to hear from CustServ to be a million percent sure.
