Player's Guide page 44, Unarmed Style talent, Novice benefit:
Your hands are as hard as iron. When you attack with your fist, you do 1d6 damage instead of 1d3.
Was that an intentional decision to effectively make a gauntlet obsolete in combat? Or should the gauntlet be included in this description, as it is for the Journeyman benefit?
I'd assume it's intentional as that's exactly the same as it says in Set 1.
I actually have an unarmed combatant in my group (a mage...strangely enough) and what we ruled is it also applies equally to gauntlets. So a gauntlet moves from 1d3+1 to 1d6+1 as it wouldn't seem that logical that it would remain the same while just regular punching becomes stronger.
As Balgin points out, though, it was written this way in Set 1 as well and not corrected in the Eratta, though it could have been missed. I wonder if GR would speak to if this was intentional or a typo that's just been missed a couple times now.
