Damage Sources and Armor

Dual weapons, animal companions, hirelings, etc.

Maybe it's made clear somewhere and I just missed it.  Or maybe it's up to the GM.  How are people running them with respect to Armor? 

Do you apply Armor as a defense to multiple sources twice or once?

I think I understand what you are asking Nemo. Maybe you could give an example?

I total the damage applied and total the armour applicable, the difference is the damage given (or taken). In effect I'm saying that I think we apply armour to multiple sources once?

Dual weapons, animal companions, and hirelings all add to your damage when attacking. So one attack, apply armor once.

Simple then.

DW not in front of me but it's probably perfectly clear in the text - just multiple D&D edition brain damage causing assumptions.

Thanks, Sage.
