Combat changes

Shields allow you to forgo your combat action for all out defense. This allows you to take 2 attacks before having the gang up penalty apply and allow you to gain a bonus die on a fighting skill next round.

Shields also give an armor bonus if you use the shield to defend against an attack. If you fight back using the shield you will gain the shield armor on a draw but not on the attacker wining.

Missile/sling weapons such as arrows and slings give +50 to initiative.

Long weapons give + 30 to initiative.

Long weapons and closing in : Long weapon have an advantage over shorter weapon in combat, A person with a shorter weapon must use their combat action to dodge to get inside the long weapon users guard to begin attacking. A long weapon user can not attack a person inside their guard with a long weapon and must disengage by using a dodge action to gain enough distance. A long weapon user disengaging through normal disengagement rules will require a turn to properly get themselves into a position and stance to use their weapon again.
