The moathouse zombies only take one hit point of damage versus piercing weapons. Do you DM all zombies this same way? If PCs are in close formation, say with short swords, do you rule that the short swords shall be treated as piercing weapons versus the zombies, because there is not enough space for the PCs to slash with the short swords in a close formation?
I’d forgotten that the 1/2 damage reduction from piercing and blunt weapons that applies to monster and juju zombies doesn’t also apply to normal zombies. It seems to me like it should (time for another Companion revision, I suppose) and I’d apply that in place of this prototypical version of the concept found here.
