here are some weapons i was pondering:
The jointed truncheon is a huge nightstick hinged in the middle so it has a whiplash action. Obviously a cleric weapon but a spiked variety could be wielded by a fighter. The ideal way to use one is called a "cossack strike".
One winds up for a big hit(time consuming) and then swings the club full force. But, at the moment before impact you pull back, the hinge action makes the club snap like a whip and shatter any skull, or ribcage, or femur, in its path. Since its such a big swing it is easy to dodge but lordie help anyone it connects with.[OOC]I got the idea from a KGB interrogator i read about who used something similar[/OOC]It could also be used on moderately thin walls. The truncheon is made of super dense, heavy rubber and is bound in thick leather like a blackjack. its about 30 inches long, with the hinge almost in the middle.
Elastic corded mace
A tempered steel ball, spiked or not according to personal taste, on a cord fashioned from the skin of amphibians. the cord, when not stretched, its two feet. It can expand to ten feet, and snap back.
an interesting use that may involve two characters:
The first PC holds the cord while the other stretches the iron ball as far as it will go behind the first PC. Then, the second PC releases the ball and both of them duck as it snaps like a rubber band at anything within 10 feet directly in front of first PC.This consumes one turn for each PC stretching back the cord, and one turn each to release the steel ball. just a thought.[OOC]kind of like wile cyote when the rock in the slingshot blasts him in the face.[/OOC]
[OOC]thats it for now, feel free to comment[/OOC]
