Weapons

While some adventurers rely more heavily on their weapons than others, virtually every hero will need some form of weapon at their side.

Making Attacks

To attack with a weapon, you have to spend a certain amount of AP. Weapons have unique APC (Action Point Costs) listed in the weapons tables below. Some weapons have a set APC: a Dagger always costs 2 AP, and a Crossbow always costs 3 AP. Some weapons have APC formulas; these are a little more complex. For example, a longsword has an APC of 5-STR, min 2. This means that using a Longsword has an APC of 5, but you subtract your STR attribute from the APC, to a minimum of 2. When you spend AP to make an attack, roll 1d20 and add your relevant attribute. The attribute you use for a weapon is dependent upon that weapon and is specified in the Attribute column on the weapons tables below. This will usually be STR or DEX. If your roll equals or exceeds your target’s defense (usually AR, but some attacks will target other defenses), then you hit your target. Roll for damage.

Dealing Damage

When you hit with a weapon attack, you deal damage. Roll the amount of damage specified in the Damage column on the weapons tables below and add the attribute specified in the Attr. column. The creature takes that much damage, subtracting it from their current HP. If a weapon says that it deals “Physical” damage, that means you can choose whether you deal blunt or sharp damage each time you use it. Polearms often have this property, given that you can often attack with either the bladed end or the butt of the weapon.

Weapon Range

You can only make an attack against a creature when that creature is within your weapon’s range. Each weapon specifies its range on the weapons tables below.

Melee

If a weapon has the Melee property, then you can attack any creature within 5 ft of you. Any abilities you have that increase your reach can enhance this.

Range

If a weapon has the Ranged property, you cannot use it as a melee weapon, but you can attack creatures within your weapon’s specified range.

Reach

If a weapon has the Reach property, then it functions as a melee weapon, but the distance that you can attack with that weapon is greater than 5 ft. The weapon’s base reach is specified after the Reach tag.

Thrown

If a weapon has the Thrown property, you can use it as a melee weapon or you can throw it up to the specified thrown distance. Once you throw a weapon, you no longer have it in hand.

Weapon tags

Weapons will have one or more tags that give the weapon unique properties.

Ammunition

If a weapon has the Ammunition tag, you must have ammunition in order to make attacks with that weapon. Ammunition might be arrows, crossbow bolts, sling pellets, and the like.

Concealed

If a weapon has the Concealed tag, then when it is sheathed it can be tucked within folds of your clothing, inside a boot, and the like. Concealed weapons are not readily visible to observers, but a pat-down will reveal these weapons, and if a creature succeeds on an AWR check against an INT check that you make when you hide the weapon, then they can spot it without needing to pat you down.

Hand-and-a-Half

Weapons with the Hand-and-a-Half tag can be wielded with one or two hands. After the Hand-and-a-Half tag, there will be a brief phrase in parentheses explaining what benefit you gain from wielding the weapon with two hands, such as dealing more damage or using fewer AP to make the attack.

Light

A weapon with the Light tag does not count against your encumbrance (see p. 319). Furthermore, light weapons can be dual wielded, using one light weapon in each hand.

One-Handed

A weapon with the One-Handed tag can only be wielded with one hand.

Special

If a weapon has the Special tag, then its special properties are explained in detail below the table that lists that weapon.

Two-Handed

A weapon with the Two-Handed tag can only be wielded with two hands.

Unwieldy

The Unwieldy tag interacts with your Encumbrance It takes 1 AP to draw or sheathe an Unwieldy weapon.
