This is where +1 magnitude for complexity comes in handy. Then, a Finesse roll could be justified to consider the peasants' pitchforks as a Group distinct from the grogs', um, greatswords.
If you can put the peasants to sleep without affecting your grogs, you can affect their weapons. The rest comes with how platonic ideals work IYS, but "weapons" or "king" certainly are.
Right. And this is an issue of positioning - hence of grog tactics.
Or I might not care, and destroy the stuff they wield - weapon, farm implement or eating utensil.
