Default Re: table make why does random hit location hitting left side more likely?

I could see a cute house rule for fencing reversing it since you are presenting you main hand side.

I don't think there are rules for it, but I could see it messing with some styles. Like maybe a perk where you can take advantage of a style but your opponent can't because they don't 'get' lefthanded yet. That's probably a bit cinematic, though.
