Blocking: with or without weapon bonus?

Sun 20 Sep 2020, 20:16

In the rules, it only says that to block you "roll for close combat". But does this include the weapon bonus (when holding a close combat weapon) or does it not? I could make an argument for either.

When you use a weapon to block or attack, you always add the weapon bonus in the skill roll.

Also, in order to block another weapon you need a weapon. Unarmed blocks only blocks unarmed attacks (not alien attacks though).
