Version 1.0 070700
For NERO Rules: Matthew Pearson, Joseph Valenti

Objective: 

  • The Objective of this play-test is to attempt to preserve the balance of two-handed versus one-handed weapons  the era of ultra-light weapon contrsuction on one-handed weapons.

One Handed Block:

Allows a polearm, two handed sword, two handed blunt, or staff to block two blows with only one hand on the weapon. The third blow will disarm the holder of the weapon as per the spell effect unless they grip the weapon with two hands before the third strike. This does apply to bows and crossbows as they are considered two-handed weapons.
