TOPIC: Weapon types

Weapon types 3 years 11 months ago #4012

Rapier (and other weapons) has DTN increased against var­i­ous types of weapons. How to know which weapons are for instance a heavy one-​handed sword or a one-​handed sword?

Is a Rapier a one-​handed sword? Is a Fal­chion a heavy one-​handed sword? Etc.

Hello Cen­dorn, wel­come to the forum

Its not overly stated — at least not in a clear videogamey d&d tag sort of thing– but its usu­ally implied through the “heavy” descrip­tor in state­ments such as “this hilt–heavy blade” or “this tip–heavy blade”, so assume that any­thing that doesn’t have a ‘heavy’ in the text isn’t a heavy weapon. Also assume that any­thing that doesn’t say “two-​handed” is a one-​handed weapon. Some weapons can be used one or two handed, and there will be stats for both types.

Thus a Rapier is a one-​handed sword since there isn’t any stats for a two-​handed mode nor two-​handed is men­tioned. It’s also a non-​heavy sword since there’s no ‘heavy’ men­tioned in its descrip­tion: “A side­sword with a some­what longer but even more slen­der blade, taper­ing for much of its length to a very acute point.“

OTOH, the Fal­chion is a heavy sword since it’s descrip­tion goes “An arm­ing sword with a slightly longer hilt and a heavy, broad blade, it’s back straight and blunt and its one edge curved.”. It can be used both one or two-​handed.

For instance, the saber is a non-​heavy, one-​handed blade because it goes “A one edged arm­ing sword with a slight to mod­er­ate back-​curve.” and because it has no men­tions or stats for two hand.

Other than that just advo­cate com­mon sense or google the swords to see how they are used

cheers!
