    Hi guys,

    I have never crippled my arm before ... maybe I have but I don't remember.

    I want to try to cripple my arm just to test this for fun.

    What is the best and fastest way to cripple my arm?
    Shooting a rifle with low Firearms skill and high Magic Aptitude?
    Or hitting with a damaged melee weapon with low Melee skill?

    Thanks in advance.

    I think your suggestion of using tech weaponry, particularly guns, with high magickal aptitude and low skill training/level seems like the best option to me.

    I think also being exceptionally healthy (as in, you have a way to take lots of damage and not die) and facing off against people with high weapon skill, yet you have little to no dodge would also work. Maybe try Garrick Stout, get his weapon and poison off him through pickpocket fate points (and give him something crap like a railroad spike or lead pipe), and get it so you can tackle him on his own out of town would work nicely.

    Hope you manage to get it to work.

    Can't say I've ever crippled my arm either. It usually gets blown off when my firearm critically misses and I die.

    Try to operate advanced technology you're completely unfamiliar with. Works just as in real life.
    More practical advice would be to go to town on the Silver Lady with a 100 aptitude mage with no melee skills using the pyrotechnic ax or something similar. Keep a few followers stocked with morgana's tears and leave the game on for a few hours. Chances are that your followers will switch sides after awhile because you've gotten so goddamn ugly.
