DR and poison


First Post
I couldn't seem to find anything to cover this. Suppose someone is hit by a tiny viper that does 1 pt. of damage, and has poison. Would someone with DR 1 (from any source) have to make the save? My instinct would be not, but I'm wondering.

The damage reduction would stop the 1 point of damage, but the poison would still take.
Like Henrix said, if the DR stops all damage, then injury type poison has no affect. See the 3.5 DMG, page 292, top of the first column.
