Weapon Construction Question
« on: May 02, 2017, 11:36:13 AM »
I am new, and was going to work on some weapons.  That being said, I was wondering about weapon shapes.  Are we required to use standard shapes for our weapons?  For example, could I make a sickle, and use it as a dagger, or make a crossbow that had a pistol grip?  Or am I required to use the default weapon shapes?  Wondering for both boffer and non-thrusting weapons.  Thanks.

It really depends on what you have in mind. Weapons cannot be made to trap weapons, nor can weapons include parts that flex like ropes and chains.

A sickle like what you describe could be used to trap weapons, or it could be used like a kind of axe. The first is bad, but the latter use is fine.

A crossbow with a pistol grip would be fine.

Thanks.  Like I said, I didnt know how strictly I had to follow the weapon guidelines for shape.  All of this is of course assuming construction requirements are met.

Interesting ideas AHCampbell. Did you end up making those weapons?
