The Hub and weapon lenght


i had a question about using the only simple versus tests and weapon stats. To just go and beat someone in a fight everyone rolls his weapon skills and the person with more s wins right? But than a spear would have no advantages against a knife. Can i emulate positioning with a speed test before the weapon roll? Should i just make it like a linked test or should i give appropriate extra Obs according to the range chart?


I find the Advantage and Disadvantage rules on page 27-28 are useful for these types of situations. Otherwise, you’re looking a Bloody Versus.
