Hi there, if any­body still reads this forum, here’s a ques­tion regard­ing Beat:

Sit­u­a­tion is: Both fight­ers attack and one chooses Beat. He wins the Reflex con­test and attacks first. So his attack against his opponent’s weapon is unop­posed. The rules state that the beaten weapon can’t be used in the next Exchange. But can it be used to deliver the attack in this red-​red-​situation?
This doesn’t seem to make sense, as the weapon is pushed aside by the blow. But if you go with that, Beat would be very pow­er­ful. The fighter would not only be safe from the strike but also quite pos­si­bly gain a huge amount of bonus dice — for the oppo­nent is penal­ized by 2 x QoS — in an unop­posed roll. Or is this penalty sub­tracted from the attack­ing dice as well?

How to han­dle this situation?
