Simplified Weapons Table

Neolithicwolf created this table in this discussion.

So I went and thought about it. I realize this takes some of the potential 'realism' out of the game, but it simplifies the weapon table tremendously. I'd likely break it down something like this.

Small one handed - 1D+2

  • Dagger
  • Handaxe
  • Club
  • Shortsword
  • Mace
  • Whip

Large One Handed - 2D+2

  • Scimitar
  • Flail
  • Longsword
  • Battleaxe
  • Morningstar
  • Spear
  • Warhammer

Small two handed - 2D

  • Quarterstaff
  • Trident

Large Two Handed - 2D+4

  • Greataxe
  • Polearms of all kinds
  • Maul

  • Shortbow (range 60)

Large Ranged - 2D+3
