so tell me which weapon would you choose if you were a warrior in a fantasy setting.
personally i would choose an axe, swords are for noble assholes and heros wannabe. axes are the real weapon of choice for a real warrior.
pd: you can also choose weapons that are not in the picture

>> No.29660858

>no polearms

>> No.29660941

I had discussions like this all the time, when I was 11.
great thread op.

>> No.29660951

What did you pick back then?

>> No.29661064

Lucerne hammer, fir reasons that should be obvious.

>> No.29661145

>pd: you can also choose weapons that are not in the picture
I choose a gun, specifically a lasgun that can be recharged by a wood fire. You can't stop me.
>That's not what-

>> No.29661212

Well I choose a sword made out of a railroad that shoots trains at my enemies when I swing it.

>> No.29661586

>Attacks per round
negative 5.

>> No.29661690

>Absorbs 5 trains into your sword per round
Just have to line up your target correctly and they get ran over either way.

>> No.29661815

if i cant have a polearm then i guess a shortsword or small axe coupled with a large shield

Any sort of spear or polearm type weapon.

>> No.29662165

My ideal weapon would be a Morning Star polearm.

>> No.29662186

Yeah, a nice sturdy shield is the way to go no matter what, unless you also get super awesome armor. As for the other hand, probably either a sword or a nice flanged mace, depending on what kind of amor my opponents will likely wear.

>> No.29662227

I would choose a mace or morning star. Nothing beats crushing your enemies with the mighty weight of a mace.

>> No.29662232

>specifically a lasgun that can be recharged by a wood fire.
laser guns have less penetration, range and damage.
Their point of them is that you would be able to recharge the weapon.

>Dat elegant brutality.

Though straight swords can be pretty sexy, too.

>> No.29662288

>not fists and or gauntlets, plebs detected.

>> No.29662306

A gun that shoots las-morning-stars that can be recharged by trains.

>> No.29662320

Simple, sturdy axe, something easy enough to maintain, nothing too swanky.

No axes left, gimme a spear. Again, nothing amazing, no flashy hero weapon, something that'll just fucking work.

>> No.29662326

A morning star is actually just any kind of mace that features long spikes. If you're thinking of that ball-and-chain dealy, that's called a flail.

First rank fire second rank fire some motherfuckers!

>> No.29662594

No I'm not feeling a flail. I don't fancy swining that bastard around, although it would be mildy amusing.

Every time.

Shame it's not a more popular weapon. I can't even find decent pictures of one.

>> No.29662684


Polehammer. It's like a spear... Except it's a hammer.

>> No.29662706

A very sharp shovel.

>> No.29662717

Yeah, I think there's a reason why they weren't all that common (outside of peasants re-applying their agrarian tools). You can usually get a similar amount of impulse/maximum force from a simple "stiff" mace, which tends to be more controllable and precise.

>> No.29662720

It's a refined metal bar which may or may not include ridges or spikes. Its simplicity might just not do it any favors.

>> No.29663223

Too simple for there to be as many fancy variations as a sword, hammer, axe, or polearm is it?

>> No.29663279

Uh, where are the polearms?

>> No.29663300

In your heart.

Seriously, place your hand over your heart and summon it.

>> No.29663367

Alternatively, grasp the several feel of wooden pole jutting out of your chest and tug.

Then drop dead, because OP was too much of a faggot to not give us polearms when other people did have them and thus the advantage of reach.
