2HDC - Quick Question

It's a broad topic, but it's essentially anything pre-gun era. Warrior Heroes, Red Sand Blue Sky, Rally Round the King for a start.

2HDC - Quick Question

Melee characters can shoot. Can shooters use melee weapons?

I have always assumed they can but can fund no conformation in the rules...

it looks like the grunt shooters come with a bow,crossbow or sling so they would have to make an "unarmed attack" in melee, that and ac2 they wouldn't last long in melee. That said, I don't think it would be too much of a stretch to allow them a one-handed melee weapon. (I couldn't find anything specific either in my book)

Your call on that one. Otherwise they shoot as you charge and they pull out a sword too? That's hwy it says shooters shoot and melee as a last resort.

Yep, thought so. Cheers Ed.

Unarmed would definitely be an emergency tactic! Cheers Buffrockjaw.
