Melee combat questions
I've two questions on melee combat: Question 1 With the EP rules for melee combat, multiple targets can be targeted by an single attack (within a meter of each other) at a accumulating -20 to all attacks, per each additional target. Any opponent from 1 meter to .1mm from the first seems fair game (RAW) Can the multiple attack be applied to different parts of the same opponent? Such as a Shiro Mifuni style half second combo: called shot(-10) multiple target (-20): left wrist + called shot(-10), multiple Target (-20): Right wrist. (-30 ea) If needed subdivide and count the wrists as two separate small targets for an additional -10 ea? Question 2 Like wise, how about targeting an opponents weapon as opponent 1 and the opponent himself as opponent 2. (think obi won in the bar) Thanks

My understanding is that the multiple opponents issue is assuming one attack aimed at several guys (so swinging your weapon or a sweep or something). I'm okay with multiple attacks on the same character, with the same penalty, if you can explain how you're doing it, but it's a GM call.
