Before One Shoots Off One's Big Mouth... should look in the damn rules book.

Hypothetical readers know that I have been grappling with unarmed combat rules for Under the Dying Sun (that "grappling"? that's a pun, you see) here and then again here.  Then, a few days ago, I was leafing through Monstrous Mayhem, the only S&S supplement at the moment, a book I have read through multiple times, and saw grappling rules.

Yep.  Grappling rules.

That sound you hear through your screen is my hand slapping my head.

Now, to be fair, I think that I might prefer my own rule--attack vs. AC 1 with target getting a STR Save to escape--versus the official rule--opposed DEX Saves.  But still....

Ah well.

  1. Oh well...
    If all the times I slapped myself in the head while reading the B/X books were condensed into 5 minutes I would be unconscious.
