When discussing initiative earlier I forgot a nice rule on "reach" that was mentioned in the Arduin Adventure. When a weapon has length or "reach" advantage over its opponent (for instance, a 2-handed sword versus a broadsword) it always attacks first if the opposing DEXs are the same. If the person with the longer weapon has a slower DEX (1-4 points) the attacks would occur simultaneous. If the disparity is greater than 4, then the longer weapon attacks first. Now, of course, this is structured around using DEX as initiative. If you are using CF, it changes slightly since you use CF instead of DEX.
