Blunt Weapons

Sat 19 May 2018, 05:46

Hello all, forgive me if this has been talked about elsewhere, but is there a particular reason that there isn't a talent that affects blunt weapons (staff, club, warhammer, etc.)?

Functionally, it could be the same as the current Axe Fighter, except replace Slashing critical at level 2 with Blunt Force critical, though that's a little boring.

Another option would be at level 2 of Blunt Weapon Fighter (horrible name, but fixable) you could also inflict agility damage, representing knocking the wind out of someone, bruises that really stiffen movement, things like that.

There is also a discussion going on in the Swedish forum. As of now the proposed talent there is something like below:

Tier 1 - +1 on rolls when you attack with a hammer/blunt weapon
Tier 2 - Hammers/blunt weapons always inflict a minimum of 1 damage on a hit, even if all of the damage was absorbed by the victims armor
Tier 3 - Add a D8 to your rolls when fighting with a hammer/blunt weapon

Good job! Would like to see such a talent in the rules.

Tomas said that they'd try to squeeze it in.
