I ran the sword last night to finally try the Gold edition. During the Fight!, my friend and I were engaged with weapons of the same length (swords) and I scripted a Beat action to try and give him a +1Ob. Later on, I realized that the game text suggested that you should script it either to gain advantage or if you already have, then you could give the penalty to your opponent.
My question is : What about when you fight with weapons of the same length ? Is it ok to script Beat in that case ?
