Default Re: Defensive Attack and Unready weapons

Could be combined also with a shield braced ungainly (Low-Tech Companion 2, p. 19: "The shield hangs over one side of your torso, preventing you from using your arms in that direction. Specify what side itís on when you ready it. You can wield one or even two one-handed weapons, or a two-handed weapon, to the other side Ė but these canít parry attacks from your shield side (see Defending Against Attacks from the Side, p. B390) or make wild swings to that side (see Wild Swings, p. B388). Changing sides requires a Ready maneuver.)".

But at this point I prefer manage the situation with a HR that makes sense using Defensive Attack with "á" weapons.

HR: If a "á" melee weapon is used with Defensive Attack and the wielder has both ST equal or superior to weapon's required ST and weapon skill at DX+2 or better, then the weapon counts as unbalanced but it doesn't become unready after the attack.
