So I'm blatantly stealing a weapon invented by Alistair Reynolds and used in his novel The Prefect: the Whiphound. It's an extensible/retractable whip that can snake along on the ground by its owner. It's used to snare opponents, so it obviously should have Snare quality, just like Bolas do in the RT corebook (page 116).
As opposed to the Bola,which is a Primitive weapon, the Whiphound should be guided by a Machine Spirit, and thus should not have the Inaccurate quality. Should I give it the Accurate quality? And what should I make the difficulty penality to Agility and Strength for slipping out of it and breaking free of it (respectively)?
Any suggestions would be appreciated!
