Another 30 I used extensively ... pretty much with two hours notice, when I had to whip up the students and faculty of an academy of music, from which the contestants in a major musical competition were drawn.
It has enough to be useful, but not enough to be really substantive. Still, there are some gems in here (I especially loved The Wizard). One quick note on The Brawler: I can't imagine willingly using my instrument in a fight -- even a tuba. Most musicians are far too protective of their tools for that. Maybe it's a custom-designed tuba with extra plating for protection? Go to Comment
Well, I agree it sounds very unwieldly.. but then again ogres are strong. Plus, have you ever seen a real human claymore? Talk about unwieldly.... some of those things are bigger than I am, and I'm more ogre then elf or dwarf.
I don't see anything really wrong with this, a lot people critique things as "unrealistic" because they think it won't be as effective as another weapon or concept. These sort of argument ignore that technology is both human and aligned over time. Yeah this may be a crappy weapon, and its use may be a poor tactic, but that doesn't mean it would n't be used. Rather all it means is that the forces of natural selection that drive warfare and invention would eventually phase this out. I also don't think it would be over complicated for fantasy race to make large metal hinge with handles. Go to Comment
