Sorry, another question. In general it is possible to capture up to one enemy piece, but is it possible to capture and immobilize in the same move? (A "joint lock + elbow strike" if you will)

You can imagine when it might happen, the Hand moves and lands on a enemy piece immobilizing it, at the same time a Hand-connected Limb moves and captures.

According to the wording of the rules I'd say it is possible, but I just want to be sure.


While I am here I also do an extra "meta" question, I have an idea for a variant. But I am not sure it makes sense or I am missing some details; what is the best way to proceed? Simply write it down, send it, and await for comments?
