Some more advanced points of the combat system:
If you attack someone, you will attack with whatever item/weapon you are holding. The defender will either automatically get out a pre-set defined weapon, or use their pre-set hand to hand.
Being attacked by more than one person lowers your block/dodge rate. So the more people you attack with, the greater chance of hitting your target.
Trying to disarm, flee, take an item, use an item, or several other actions can result in losing a round of combat. The action may also enable your opponent to get in a more damaging attack.
You can change postures as often as you'd like in combat but it takes time to shift into a new posture. See 'help posture' for more information.
