In Hand to hand combat a person who attacks with fist does 1 dice plus combat add damage? A Person with Pugilism 1 would do 1 dice of extra damage in addition to the normal 1 dice plus combat adds? From the book the kid that Alex is fighting has no martial skills while Alex has pugilism 1. But both Alex and the kid are doing 1 dice damage plus combat adds. But shouldn't Alex had 2 dice plus combat adds or does the 1st level of Pugilism not modify hand to hand damage with an extra dice of damage?

Late to the party here, but I've always read it as the Pugilism skill level equals the total number of dice rolled; level one equals one die, same as everybody. A character with one level of Pugilism doesn't hit harder than anyone else, but can take a punch a little better. The only real benefit of one level of Pugilism is the ability to absorb one hit per round.
