With a thunderous right, my knuckles crush the mooks jaw. A left round house knocks his buddy for a loop. The third and final crook gets an upper cut that lifts him off the ground before gravity takes over and slams him to the floor.
As I said before Noir Mystery Men, That Old Black Magic uses a system derived from S&W. How is one of the ways its different? It used a dual wound track.

All hand to hand melee combat does bruise damage. Lethal weapons do lethal and bruise. So for example a short sword does 1d6/1d6.
