Weapon Upgrades

Post  Vic Vegas on Fri Aug 29, 2014 8:00 pm

There seems to be a gap in the variety of axes between francisca and battle-axe.  Going from weight 3.8 to 7.5.  Contrast this with swords, where in the range of the axe-gap you see, broad sword, scimitar, longsword and bast*rd sword.  FOUR weapons.  Dag.  

So, what axe can we find that is between the weights of 3.8 and 7.5?  After doing a bit of searching (I'm not an axe-master or anything) I found the Broad Axe, which for all intents and purposes could be compared to a single bladed battle-axe with a handle too long for throwing (the francisca was a clumsy throwing weapon, pitching end over end in an almost random, hurly-burly fashion.  Good when you have a field of foes running at you, not so good for hitting a bullseye).  The broad axe could have a weight of 5.

Then there's the Sparh Axe which is similar to a pole axe, except it doesn't have the spike on top, and has a much larger axe-head (good for slash and cleave attacks).  This could be a 6.5 weight weapon.

Well, there's two ideas that fit neatly within the gap.  There are plenty of axes out there, that's for sure.
