Can I have a greataxe thread please?

You can have an "okay" axe thread.
Let's not set our sights too high, okay?

My group uses the critical failure rule. If you roll a 1, you must roll the d20 again. If you don't beat the other guy's armor modifier, you hit yourself. Once hit myself for a full 12 damage in the leg (thankfully it's only weapon damage or I might've been screwed)

This thread is now about awesome guns. Preferrably unnecessarily cool ones, or decorative ones. Post!

What the hell is that thing? I mean, it's gorgeous, but what's going on with that double magazine? Is this some kind of crazy semi-automatic bolt-action fusion?

>> No.12396570

I have no idea myself, I just saw it on /k/ and saved it.

>> No.12396594

Probably a regular bolt action mechanism, just loading from two stacks to increase ammo capacity. Would probably be mechanically unreliable but it still looks sweet.

Historically, two-bitted (bladed) axes were never used in combat for obvious reasons. All found two-bitted axeheads have been determined to be either ceremonial or tools, being much thicker than a weapons-grade axe anyway, or being made of materials unfit for weapons, such as gold.

There's just no sense in swinging around an axe with an extra blade. One blade is more than enough for anything you're going to kill with an axe. You aren't going to break the axe in the span of one fight, and even if you do, it's more likely it's the haft that breaks. An extra blade simply adds weight, and in a fight, any extra weight is bad. And it required more resources to make, too. And it was more sensible to put a beak on the other side if you wanted two hitting surfaces, since I can guarantee that if it's not going down with one blade, it's not going down with the other either. But if you have another type of damage there... then it might.
Sure, someone might have used a two-bitted woodman's axe to defend his life. But the same could be said of rocks, dead animals and shoes. Doesn't make them weapons. Trees don't move out of the way, so you can take your sweet time, and it's long work, so you might actually want to switch your blade because the other's going dull (over the course of days or weeks), since you probably don't want to stop to go fetch a new one.
Actually, it could just be said that axe blades in general were much smaller than what's often depicted. You really don't need that much to axe-murder another human being. And you don't need a big head slowing you down when a smaller one (evidently) works.

Still, I do admit that in fantasy, a big fucking axe is cool.
