If an attack is reduced to zero Wound damage by soak are all other effects also negated?
Essentially, is a critical hit a 'status effect' like Ensnare or Knockdown, i.e. can still be activated even if no damage is caused? Or is it an inherent part of the damage being caused? The text states '... and also a critical hit may be inflicted' in a separate paragraph from the section on inflicting and reducing damage. What are the effects of Parry in this situation?
