I like, but I have the questions. Namely, how would you handle sub-locations?

Would you simply determine the size of said sub-location—like the shoulder, the chest, the ear, etc.—and assign it a penalty directly, or would you "Default" it off of the host location?

What about strikes to "veins and arteries"?

What about the random chance to hit the vitals on a torso hit, or a vein/artery on a neck or limb hit?

What about strikes to the spine, both deliberate/targeted and incidental (i.e. random chance from striking someone in the back)?
