Replace the text of the rule “Equipment” to

If a Weapon is not Equipped by an Orc, it has no Affect for that Orc. Only one Weapon may be Equipped by each Orc, and is marked by adding “(e)” after the Equipped weapon in that Orc’s Item list in the GNDT.

If an Orc has no weapon Equipped, they may Equip any Weapon they are holding at any time.

An Orc may Unequip any weapon they have Equipped by spending 1 AP.

If the rule “Trade” exists, then in it replace “No Orc may donate a Weapon in this way if the Orc they would give it to already holds a Weapon.” with

No Orc may donate an Equipped Weapon.

The “only hold one weapon” rule seems a bit problematic when it comes to loot distribution. For example, if I wound That Sneaky Human but don’t kill it, its unclear if the Orc that deals the killing blow has to give me the bag of gold (as I can’t get one of the weapons), or if I temporarily hold both weapons until I choose which one I want, or I just get nothing. Better to solve the issue before we get to it and just let you hold as many weapons as you want but only use one.

Not sure there’s a problem here - the killer distributes “as much of the Loot as is possible” within the constraint that “Orcs can only hold one Weapon at any given time”. Giving you a second Weapon isn’t an option because it would create an illegal gamestate, so it has to be the gold in order to distribute “as much as is possible”.

“If an action would make an orc hold more than one weapon, that orc may choose one to keep and discard the rest.”

So actions that let orc hold more than one are allowed, the orc just has to choose which one to keep. This becomes an issue when Orcs can take actions that change another orcs items.

Clucky is right for
