Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

@DForck42: I know of spears that are stab safe but not of swords/daggers. Any links?

comment Any tips for two-weapon training in LARP?
@C.Ross: I have been in too many LRP unsafe fights because of douchebags that "adapted" what they learned via a filter of stupid in SCA/Historical martial arts. It is a good idea to look at those sources but remember that they are unsafe. This is not aimed against you at al, just a general jadedness of my part ^_~

Should add this as a book if you are interested in real life fighting. Schools and Masters of Fencing: From the Middle Ages to the Eighteenth Century at amazon.co.uk/Schools-Masters-Fencing-Eighteenth-Century/dp/…

If you wanted to do that, go find your local historical martial art place (mine is here: royalarmouries.org/what-we-do/clubs-and-societies/…) but what they will teach you will be LRP unsafe.

comment How well does “attractiveness” work as a stat?
It always came up in games I was part: put your lowest rolled score in it since it's so cheap to have it upped via minor surgery -- there are no ugly people (unless by choice) in Cyberpunk!

comment How to make magic items more interesting?
If you are going to have something that scale, just make sure it does a multiplier and not an addition. So, the sword bonus is 1.2 that of your skill -- at skill of 100, you get +20, at skill 10, you get +2...

comment How does using The Sight work?
The only free thing is the cheese in the mouse trap. To be fair, not everything I do is to screw the characters up. I just like to have prices for powers: nothing comes free or easy.
