30 or more Inferior Swords    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)

Not every sword robbed from a tomb, picked up on the battlefield or brought in some out of the way shop is going to be a Master Sword of wonder. Far from it....Here are thirty or more swords that lack that certain something...Some have problems with them in combat, others are good weapons but cause other problems, legal or otherwise, for their owners.

30 Hidden Weapons    Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Combat)

Whilst there may be times and places where it is perfectly legally acceptable to swing a sword around and other such weapons, at many times in history weapons have either been limited to the nobility only (as in the Japan of the Tokugawa Shoguns) or outright banned for almost everybody (as in most Western countries today.) Even in more weapon-friendly fantasy worlds, there may be times and places where weapons are banned for most people (such as at the court of a noble, or in certain taverns whose owners really don't want sword fights in their establishment.) With this is mind, here are 30+ items that can be used as weapons.

Rain slowly builds, thunder and lightning continue to roll in. Road muddies, horse/wagon getting stuck in the mud. Thunder strikes coinciding with a deep hole a horse just walked in, horse panics, breaks its leg (maybe just sprain?). Horse is decompacitated and the rain just went from pouring to an all out monsoon. Shelter needs to be found, horse needs to be taken care of, covered in mud, add the posibility of items being lost to the confusion with the wind and dealing with spooked animals.
