So recently ive caught wind of a player using a round shield with a really baggy shield cover. Like, the cover sags down another length below the actual shield. Then the fighter is using a down stick behind this shield. Invisible due to the long cover, but still able to stab and even strike due to the cover not interfereing with the hits. There are no rules saying you cant have a really saggy piece of fabric hanging from the bottom of your shield. "Its just like having a war banner on the field, should those be banned for being loose cloth?"

Thoughts, and do you think this should be aloud on te field?

The governing rule would be:

1.4. Creative interpretation of the rules to gain any advantage is discouraged. These rules are intentionally sparse to allow for ease of use. The Marshal, according to these rules, and medieval foam combat precedent, settles all disputes.
