Still reading rules so I can run that #GURPS Mecha campaign, but apparently in 3rd edition GURPS you can parry a mech's punch or other melee attack with a dagger.
Maybe I should switch to 4th, but I kinda don't want to convert stuff in the Mecha sourcebook (which is for 3rd)?
I can probably just pull in the 4th edition rule about max parryable weapon weight, but I wonder what else is missing.
Oh wait a sec. That applies only to parrying, so the players could still use a shield or buckler or something to block the giant robot super sword or whatever.
@expiredpopsicle I believe 3rd has optional rules for damage to shields, if that helps.
