Weapons (changes from the IK
Character Primer only)
All Cleft Weapons require the
Exotic Weapon Proficiency to wield without penalty. The cleft arrow does
not require any special proficiency outside that used to wield the a bow.
Additionally, Cleft Arrows behave in the same way that masterwork arrows
do (i.e. they are ruined after being fired). Cleft Arrows do damage dependant
on the kind of bow they're fired from (1d6 for a shortbow class weapon, 1d8
for a longbow class weapon).
Ogrun War Cleaver
The Ogrun War Cleaver is a huge
weapon (polearm) that has a reach of 15'. The special design of the weapon
allows the weilder to make attacks against opponents 10' and 15' away, but
not against opponents 5' away. The Ogrun War Cleaver is a Racial Familiarity
weapon: Ogrun with access to proficiency in all Martial Weapons automatically
gain proficiency in the Ogrun War Cleaver. The Ogrun War Cleaver is a martial
weapon for all Ogrun. For non-Ogrun, it requires the Exotic Weapon Proficiency
Note: Ogrun do not have a natural
reach. However, using Huge 2-handed weapons (such as a Huge Greatsword) grants
them reach out to 10'. Large polearms that normally give a 10' reach to medium
sized characters (such as the Longspear or Glaive), when created as a huge
sized weapon for Ogrun grant a reach of 15', but cannot strike creatures
within the 5' and 10' ranges.
The Nyss Claymore is an Exotic
Weapon for all non-Nyss, but a Martial weapon for all Nyss (i.e. if you have
the Martial Weapon class proficiency, like Fighters, Rangers, etc, you automatically
gain proficiency in the Nyss Claymore). Nyss Claymores are all considered
Masterwork weapons. Additionally, they are all "heirloom weapons,"
making them "levelable" (I decide when they level, not you). You
can use Weapon Finesse with a Nyss Claymore. Fighters, Rangers, Barbarians,
and Clerics are given a Nyss Claymore (from their father/mother or possibly
Mentor) at the beginning of the game. The 1000 g.p. price for a Nyss Claymore
assumes you could buy one from somewhere, like a black market or a scavenged
Nyss Claymore. Nyss will not sell their Claymores, they are always given
as a status symbol.
