Full Version: On Cloaks in Combat

There is a technique in historical European martial arts whereby one may use a cloak (or similar cloth covering) as a sort of shield against melee weapons. Moreover, the cloth could be thrown onto the opponents weapon or else her head as a means of distraction and encumbrance. I am wondering if this form of combat is allowed in SPITE. Thank you.
Howdy!
Thanks for asking! Unfortunately this technique wouldn't be allowed in Spite. We want to keep our players safe out-of-game and wouldn't allow anything that would require removing the ability for people to see, move freely Out-of-Game, involve direct personal contact in combat, or contests of out-of-game strength.
Basically, any techniques other than basic combat as described in the rule book are represented by character skills. Let us know if you have other questions!
