Brass Knuckles

Postby Master of Misfits » Sat Nov 27, 2004 4:36 pm

I'm trying to make a character named Mosh Pit. He's a duplicator who specializes in grappling. I'd like to give him a little something more to his unarmed strike, and thought i'd let him have brass knuckles. But would this cout as an unarmed strike still? I thought i'd make it usuing Weapon, but could also do it with Natural Weapons. any thoughts?

Any way you cut it, the brass knuckles come out to be Strike with the Device flaw - in other words, weapon. Whether it would still be counted as an unarmed attack or not is up to the GM, but I would definitely allow it myself.

I'd rule in favor of it, personally. Strike with weapons, ruled as an unarmed attack. Great concept too!
Five ranks in bluff can do a lot more than a power punch ever could.

[quote="Master of Misfits"] I thought i'd make it usuing Weapon, but could also do it with Natural Weapons. [/qoute]Not Natual Weapons. I don't think that B-Knuckles count as Lethal in the worlds of fiction. They aren't pointy! :wink:

I think that's a good idea.
Weapons like pepper spray, brass knuckles etc. is important to protect ourselves in times of danger,
But always remember the best weapon is prayer.
