Hi.
My Arch Lector is equipped with VHS (Van Horstmann's speculum) and the shield of the gorgon and this gives rise to a question.

The VHS switches some stats with a challenging opponent and one of them is Attacks. The Shield of the Gorgon makes one opponent in base contact with the Lector lose one attack.

So, in a challenge, will the shield give my opponent a total of 1 attack (Lectors 2 minus 1, i.e. the VHS applies first and the shield second), or does this reduce my opponents number of attacks by 1 before the VHS switch and therefore gives ME one less attack with VHS?

I don't know the exact wording of VHS, but, if it exchanges stats, it would probably not include any modifiers.

you swap base stats, not modified stats. so he would fight with your 2 attacks, then -1 for the shield for that.
