#3 Old School Rules I Don't Use, Weapon Speed Factors

Now to be honest I have played with weapon speed factors with a shifting initiative engagement system (I'll post that later) but they never quite clicked for me.

Over the years as I learned more about swordplay I also found the rules really didn't make sense or fit the D&D combat system very well so I dropped them.

I haven't missed them since.


  1. Amen. Weapon speed factors was one of those things that never made it into any of our games except one. The DM was tarred and feathered and told if he used them again he would be sentenced to death by four siders.

  2. Death by 4 siders? Cruel but clever. I like ;)
