Enter Stage Left: The Comedic Jabs Combat Tradition
Among the most esoteric and rarest set of combat techniques is the Comedic Jabs combat tradition, a discipline that defies the grim seriousness of all others, steeping its practitioners in what to some seems to be mere tomfoolery—yet this art of combat is as deadly as it is unusual. Found among the actors in theatrical troupes, street performers, and adventurers with a penchant for farce, this tradition is an approach to battle that emphasizes mastery over the mind of an opponent. When employed correctly its methods frustrate and baffle, wearing down an enemy’s defenses for a spectacular finishing blow. By Mike Myler.

Adding color to any stop in a settlement, these listings also include game mechanics for the small perks that participation can provide. By Marc Kenobi.

This article addresses gear for the Cosmopolitan, Eladrin, Stoic Orc, Lone Wanderer, Tyrannized, and Wood Elf cultures, with more to come in future articles. By Peter N. Martin
