Weapons

Weapon damage, in general

  • Sword = d8
  • Gun = 2d8
  • Ray, Pax Tephnia = 2d10
  • Ray, Late Tephnia (War of Succession/Rebellion and after) = 2d20

Melee weapons

Melee weapons remain largely unchanged, but metal is relatively rare.

Guns

Guns have been rare, after the decadence of the dark ages and wars.  But small workshops, especially in Vennar, are reviving the art of gunsmithing.  Availability is still random, and prices are best guesses.  Haggling is a must.

(Note:  These guns and their capacities represent the spirit of a range of Victorian and earlier designs/mechanisms/technologies, but they are ultimately their own monsters.)

Archaetech melee weapons

Include various bizarre tools of destruction…  I’ve compiled here some fave future-materials and Kirbyesque weapons, though nothing beats this chart from DnDWithPornstars.

Archaeswords

  • Bend (hard plastic, light but prone to breaking) – same dmg by sword type, but +1 to hit (lightweight).  On a roll of 1, roll an additional d10.  A further roll of 1 indicates a shattered weapon.
  • X-iron, metron (meteoric iron) – +1 dmg
  • Tarsteel (black steel; cheaper version of green steel) – +1 dmg, +1 to hit
  • Green steel (early Tephnian) – +2 dmg, +2 to hit
  • Blood steel (red steel; rare elite green steel that “drinks” human blood to power itself, at the nano level) – +1d4 dmg, +1 to hit
  • Blue steel (very rare super-elite green steel that uses solar power to function) – +3 to hit
  • Brightdrink – aura of darkness (blur), shatters enemy armor on crit hit, +1 to hit (lightweight)
  • Cerasteel – a la Nausicaa, very old, +4 dmg, +2 to hit, indestructible

Nervewhips

  • Nervequirt
  • Nervescourge
  • Nervewhip

Ion Knives

  • Ion knife
  • Ion sai
  • Ion sword

Archaetech rays
