Weapon Grip?? (Character Sheet)

posted Dec 14, 2017 04:14:06 by abrahamlin27
I can't find this in the rulebook anywhere, but I'm assuming it means how you're holding your weapon for the purposes of disarm?

Where did you encounter the term?

It in the weapon stat block of the character sheet.
There's Range/Reach, Grip, Size, Damage, Loads, and Qualities.

I know what all the others are, and I thought grip might be one handed or two handed, but in the rulebook 1H and 2H are listed as sizes.
Unbalanced is conditional based on Brawn, so I thought maybe grip was there to remind the player if it's 1H or 2H for them, but I wasn't sure.
There's also no rule about using a 1H weapon with two hands (or a rule prohibiting it), so I thought maybe Grip would be to remind the player how they are holding the weapon since disarm's cost is based on the weapon being 1 or 2H.

I also thought Grip might have been a hold over from an earlier draft and the inked character sheet was too cool to throw out.

EDIT: typos

Seems like you answered your own question.

I mean, I gave three scenarios as to why Grip exists, but for now I'll just assume it doesn't have a meaning in the rules.

Thanks for your replies.

I asked the same question to Lloyd Gyan last summer. His first answer was the same as you (1h/2h). I didn't make sense to me because there's is a "Size" box. That's what the rules refers as 1 handed or two handed.

He came back later with that answer:

Grip is an extra set of rules that will be released later for Advanced Two handed weapon rulings, as there was a lot of feedback that people who do so are shafted.
