How does elemental resistance work? Fire Resistance 50% obviously doesn't mean I resist 50% of any fire damage inflicted on me, since I have 108% and I'm still taking damage. So is that 50% of the resistance it's possible to have? Something more complicated?

PC resistances can't go above a certain point, but something like 25% resistance does make you take 75 damage from a 100 point fireblast.

Either that, or something similar to the Exile system where each point of damage had a chance to be negated by the resistance. Very confusing system, but I'm beginning to think that is the way it is with Avernum as well.
