Grappling is a form of combat that has touched many cultures and civilisations. At empire it is allowed but it is restricted to one on one combat while in anvil. If you step outside for a quest or any such thing, then you may not grapple.
Something I wasn’t sure about was whether or not you could just do it on the spot or if you had to have planned it out in advance. I decided to contact PD and they told me that and I quote: ‘The ref will then check that both parties know what they’re getting themselves in for’. This means that as long as everyone is fine with it, you can just have a grapple with a random person in any safe location as long as a referee is present.
If anyone reading this has martial arts experience, feel free to reply to this topic, it might be useful for people to know who they can approach if they want to do some grappling. My current character would not be interested but my next one might.
Thank you for reading.
