WOIN Equipment Questions

There is no real description of how the Garotte works. Should there be special rules? Maybe... on a successful grab attack does damage each round until the grab is broken?

There is no real description of how the crowbar works mechanically Does this give a bonus or remove a penalty?

Cold Iron is mentioned but there is no information in the equipment chapter. What should be cost modifier?

There seems to be a distinction between Enchanted weapons and weapons that are upgrade using customisations. I assume that customisations are not considered magical when it comes to Abjure Magic spells, but are the result of magick-like features created by a skilled smith. Is this the case?

A garotte is a flexible stick-like whip; often the hilt is combined with some hand-defense like a basket.
It should be too short for grapples.

A crowbar without additional quality should only remove the penalty for opening something with only a small gap, like a door/chest without a lock.

The cold Iron - question is a good one - @Morrus same rules like adamant/elf silk/mithral?

Customization is something I think very much about; I - for myself - think every customization is mundane, applied with craftmanship (special metal on blade edges) or alchemy (special coating for elemental damage).
Additionally, you have different systems how many customizations/enchantments can be applied; every item can hold customizations, every excellent or better item may hold one enchantment. Items made from special material may hold a second enchantment (they cannot be lower than exceptional quality).

Garrotte. Hmm. Maybe use the suffocation rules? END countdown pool?

Cold iron is just iron forged at a lower temperature. Costs the same as iron.

Do you know what's best with this question?
I googled it.
First three hits are historical columns.
Following: wikipedia.
Then, a post from german officials about forbidden weapons in germany.
Number six: Amazon offer for a cheese cutter wire. Amazon WTF!

The WWII special forces / SOE garottes sound close, but I guess in a fantasy setting bow string would be a better fit than piano wire or cheese wire.
