Custom Weapon Creation[edit]

You know what you want, but no weapon out there fits the bill. What do you do?

Make a new one of course! With this variant, you can create a weapon with custom stats easily and quickly with very little hassle.

First choose a weapon type (simple, martial, exotic), take the starting stats, apply the upgrades, and voila! Instant weapon.

Base Weapons[edit]

All the following weapons start with a 20/x2 threat range and critical multiplier, and have a single damage type.

Simple: 4 Upgrade Points[edit]
  • Light: Base damage 1d3
  • One-handed: Base damage 1d4
  • Two-handed: Base damage 1d6
Martial: 5 Upgrade Points[edit]
  • Light: Base damage 1d3
  • One-handed: Base damage 1d4
  • Two-handed: Base damage 1d8
Exotic: 6 Upgrade Points[edit]
  • Light: Base damage 1d4
  • One-handed: Base damage 1d6
  • Two-handed: Base damage 1d8

Weapon Damage Progression[edit]

Choose one of the following two:

  • 1->1d2->1d3->1d4->1d6->1d8->1d10->1d12->2d8
  • 1->1d2->1d3->1d4->1d6->1d8->2d4->2d6->2d8
