Several questions have come up concerning the natural soak available to Neutral ethics characters, and any bonus damage that may come into play. I have summarized below.

Dark Ethics: 50% natural soak against dark ethics; X1.5 damage from sandstone-enhanced weapons; X2 damage from light ethics.

Light Ethics: 50% natural soak against light ethics; X1.5 damage from sandstone-enhanced weapons; X2 damage from dark ethics.

Neutral Characters: X1.25 damage from both light and dark ethics.

As you can see, neutral characters DO NOT get a 50% soak bonus against sandstone-enhanced attacks. This is to balance the amount of damage that neutral players are allowed to pump out when fighting light/dark ethics against the incoming damage. In other words, they get a boost to damage but no defenses.

Given the fact that most neutral characters have placed sandstones in their weapons and there is no way to "turn them off," I feel that this is fair.
