I agree that the old RQ2 damage modifying Blade Venom really sucked.

However, HW has very satisfactory rules for simulating the effects of poison and I certainly see no reason why many Gloranthan cultures wouldn't have developed noxious substances which were sticky enough to apply to an edged weapon. There's certainly no doubt in my mind that Broos don't cover anything they can (including their weapons) in all manner of nasty sticky stuff hoping that they can get it into contact with.. well, anything really.

The level of defeat in a combat should probably have a carry over modifier for the following contest with the Blade venom.

Now, anyone want to say something about throwing acid?
