> Would you say RQ3 is more abstract and RQ6 more simulationist, really?

Yes, really.

RQ6 says, explicitly, "Fighting in RuneQuest is resolved in a blow by blow
progression, each attach or parry representing a single swing, cast[,] or
shot or a weapon." p140

RQ3 says, explicitly, "In melee combat, an attack is not just one blow but
a series or combination of blows which occupy a span of time beginning
with the strike on which the weapon may be used until the end of the melee
round". p50 Del.

Both are simulationist of course, insofar they are designed with a view to
be realistic in their presentation.

All the best, Lev
