Comment on Close Combat 1

One thing I note in this example is that you don't roll the hit location until after one succeeds or fails a defense. BUT...if you're, say, kicking at an opponent's leg who only knows boxing, he's at a penalty to defend.

[Possibly bad example, as boxing is bad vs all kicks, not just low-line ones]

I think you need to resolve hit location before you roll the defenses, so that any special cases brought about by particular skill use are taken into consideration before rolling success/failure.

[Possible also that in Basic Set, this isn't necessary. Personally, I don't know that I'd give a boxer a penalty to defend against a high kick, esp to the head, but the low-line stuff, probably. Still, not basic set, so mostly disregard this one]
