Noooo ... but I had another idea recently how to improve melee combat
in general. [Sees people turning away, but nothing can stop him now]

Having practiced martial arts for quite a long time now, I can see
the advantage of a customized tactile enhancement system built into
the fighter´s arms and hands.
The so-called "internal" martial arts styles focus on smooth
movements which gain their momentum from the opponent´s blows.
Tactile training offers the possibility (though it´s hard to learn)
to "feel" where your opponent´s strike goes. This helps you greatly
when defending the strike. I know it works, and from my MA teachers,
I know it also works with two weapons.


Oh, and thanks for the warm welcome >: ((
Wanna know more about DICELESS ROLEPLAYING, and some
SHADOWRUN stuff? Then jack into
(and I_m getting mad if this sig disappears again (GROWLS) )
