Default Re: Sword question - swing vs thrust

As already said, generically speaking swinging is best because of higher base damage, but...

* Optional Low-Tech armor rules reduce the cutting damage modifier to x1 unless you comepletely overwhelm the armor, but doesn't change impaling damage.
* You can't target vitals or armor chinks with cutting damage.
* Using a defensive grip for close combat prevents swinging attacks entirely.
