I think everyone can remember the scene from the Conan the Barbarian (1982) film where Conan gets drunk and punches a camel. I see no functionality for brawling in the current game and have heard nothing about it in the TestLive patch, so decided to add it myself.
It includes hide, iron, steel, hardened steel and star metal tiers. The damage is comparable to swords (spiked sets), or daggers (studded, includes armor penetration). Since offhand weapons are ‘meh’ and everyone uses ranged, 2H or sword/board, and holding a shield while punching a rhino looks strange, offhands act as shields (a la Wonder Woman).
This is a small file with no added graphics. Flawless pieces are available for hardened steel and star metal. This has been tested with both Age of Calamitous and Pippi with no current known issues.
