Melee Combat

Melee combat is carried out using specially made larp-safe weapons.
We can provide a few knives and daggers for people to use
but we cannot provide very many. It is expected that you will
provide your own melee weapon if you intend to use one.
Under no circumstances should anyone use any form of hand-to-hand
combat technique


All characters have 2 hit points for melee strikes. This can be increased by wearing armour. All melee weapons do a single hit point of damage regardless of the size of the weapon. If you are reduced to 0 hit points you should fall to the floor and take no further part in that combat until the First Aid skill has been used on you (or by yourself).

Available Weapons

Combat knives and similar are smuggled into the Zone in large numbers. Other melee weapons common to military or security use such as batons are less common, but still brought in. Swords, axes, hammers, spears and the like are for sale but are significantly rarer. Please check with a system ref before you buy any melee weapon other than a knife to ensure what you want is available.
