This is a detailed list of the weapons and their workings. In some cases there are special rules explained in the description:

Armor-piercing ArrowEdit

Damage: N/A Type: Ammo Range: N/A Dual: No

An arrow with a penetrating tip made to go through hard armor. Reduces target’s Physical Resistance by 20 points from Armor.

ArquebusEdit

Damage: 3 Type: Heavy Range: 80 m. Dual: No

The arquebus is a firearm made from a long metal tube through which a ball of lead shot is propelled by an explosion of gunpowder. The arquebus is basically a cannon small enough to be carried and fired by a lone man. If the Fumble is rolled the arquebus bursts, which ruins the weapon. The Arquebus attacks with a powerful amount of force and 25 points of Physical Resistance from Armor. Requires a full round to reload.

Bastard SwordEdit

Damage: 2 Type: Special Range: Melee Dual: Yes

This is a sword halfway between a Long Sword and the Two-handed Sword, measuring about five feet long. The weapon’s long grip and counterweight allow it to be used with either one or two hands. When wielded two handed the Bastard Sword is counted as a Heavy Weapon and has it’s damage increased to 3 but cannot be dual wielded or used with a shield larger than a buckler.

Battle AxeEdit

Damage: 2 Type: Special Range: Melee/5 m. Dual: Yes

A more manageable version of the Two-handed Axe, a Battle Axe can be wielded with just one hand. Like the Bastard Sword, the Battle Axe can be wielded one or two handed. When wielded two handed the weapon’s damage increases to 3 but cannot be dual wielded or used with a shield larger than a buckler.

BlowgunEdit

Damage: N/A Type: Light Range: 50 m. Dual: No

This is a hollow tube of wood or metal from one to three feet long. It is used to shoot small darts, which are usually poisoned. As a special rule, the blowgun does not actually deal damage but still requires an attack roll. It requires both hands for use.

BolosEdit

Damage: N/A Type: Light Range: 20 m. Dual: No

A throwing weapon made up of three balls of metal or reinforced leather tied together by cords. It is used to capture an opponent.

BoomerangEdit

Damage: 1 Type: Light Range: 20 m. Dual: Yes

A curved stick of wood or metal designed to be thrown and to return if it doesn’t hit anything. On a Fumble the Boomerang does not return to the wielder, instead flying off in a random direction.

BroadswordEdit

Damage: 1 Type: Light Range: Melee Dual: Yes

A straight-bladed weapon slightly shorter than the Long Sword. It is characterized by its broad blade and great Fortitude. When targeted for Sundering the Broadsword receives a +10 to the roll.

BucklerEdit

Damage: 1 Type: Shield Range: Melee Dual: No

This is a very small shield no more than a foot across. The greatest advantage of the buckler is that it can be fastened directly onto the forearm, allowing both hands to remain free. Bucklers grant a +10 bonus to defense rolls for deflecting attacks but can only be used against melee attacks.

CannonEdit

Damage: 6/3 Type: Artillery Range: 250 m. Dual: No

A firearm made of a large metal tube from which a large metal shell is propelled by gunpowder. The shell is made to explode, creating a cloud of shrapnel with a radius of 15 – 30 feet. Although the shell itself attacks in a conventional way, the explosion does not. The accuracy is checked to see if the shell hits where intended. After that, if a victim attempts to Dodge or Block, he must pass check of difficulty 40 if he is at greater than half the radius of the explosion, or against a difficulty 60 otherwise. If a Fumble is rolled with a cannon the cannon bursts, which ruins the weapon. Cannons completely ignore any armor worn by an individual, though only ignore 10 points of Physical Resistance of any reinforced structure. The damage value of the Cannon is split into two types. The number before the slash is the damage of being hit directly by the Cannonball, the second value is the damage of the explosion created by it. The cannon ignores any armor worn by an individual and bypasses 15 points of a fortified structures Physical Resistance.

Cavalry LanceEdit

Damage: 3 Type: Heavy Range: Melee Dual: No

A longer and heavier version of the traditional lance, it measures from nine to 12 feet long and can only be wielded from horseback. If it is used to block an attack, the defender gains a +10 to their defense roll.

To lend greater power to the strikes, the weapon is twirled to use centrifugal force. Although this is technically a two handed weapon it allows a wielder to attack twice as if dual wielding, though the wielder suffers a penalty to the second attack as if it were a medium weapon.

In exchange for this benefit the unwieldy nature of the War Maul imposes a -10 to attacks rolls.
