You mean you actually believe that these are correct?

Or is your writing project about Internet naivety?

My writing project is about giant crystalline beasts, the clone of an imprisoned god, and prosthetic limbs made out of animal parts. I don't think the readers are going to give a shit if these are wrong or not.

Sigh...are we really having this argument about the typicals double edged vs katanas again?

There's no point, katanss and double edges are apples and oranges that both served different purposes irl. Katana's werent made for blocking like we always see in the games/movies, doubles edges were bulkier and made of better for heavily armored opponents but both were outclassed by the spear anyways.

Historically speaking, spears were more versatile and commonly used, it's just that swords were romanticized and overglorified as some ultimate weapon of the past.

One: You're the first person to use the word 'Katana' in this entire thread.

Two: Is the only point of reference that people have for swords Legend of Zelda and Japanese Animation? There was a bunch of movies a while ago called Pirates of the Caribbean, ever seen it? They had this neat little thing called a Cutlass, those were a nice piece of kit. Then there's the Chinese Dao, big front heavy fucker that was good for chopping. Watch a Jackie Chan movies, there's about a fifty-fifty chance you'll see one some time. Next there's the Rapier which was made most famous by The Three Musketeers and it's various reincarnations, recently the series currently running on the BBC. You know what all those had in common? They're all single edged weapons.

Three: Fuck yeah on your point about spears though. More useful, less cost, and you're not going to cut yourself if you put more distance between your hands during close combat. I'd also add axes to the list of under appreciated blades, though the Lord of the Rings movies did increase their popularity with the Gimli character.

That is all.

double edged blades are wider, thus using the "flat" side to block allows you to block far better.
#127 - justakewldewd (03/24/2015) [-]
I'm gonna disagree that the width of the blade makes any damn difference when it comes to blocking. Your taking two flattened shafts and banging them together, one's not magically going to move through the other one just because one is wider or thinner. You could use a damn knitting needle as long you get your metal between you and the opponent's. And at least you don't have to worry about accidentally cutting yourself on your own sword if you put a hand higher on the shaft to block a considerably heavy blow... which is also less of a worry with a single-edged blade.

Point Single-Edged

Though thinking about it, that's only true for slashing attacks. Blocking against thrusts does give the edge to a wider sword... if only because the wider sword protects a larger area from being ventilated. I mean, you don't block a thrust with a sword, do you? You either use an actual shield or you parry that shit.

Half Point Double-Edged

And of course you wouldn't use the edge of the blade to block, that'll send all that work grinding a nice edge straight into the shitter. That's like... what, right behind 'how to grip' and 'how to swing' on the list of lessons for how to not kill yourself with a sword? Although... come to think of it, is some idiot does just keep blocking with the edge, they just have to turn the blade around and they get a brand new edge to play with.

Point Double-Edged

Wait, let me tally up the scores here.

1, Single-Edged
1.5, Double-Edged

Hold up, that wasn't supposed to happen. Uhh... smokebomb!

They use the most basic strategy of fighters in front, casters in back, but I've only had one player that's taken cover and he just joined last session and there's no flanking or strategic targeting. The rest of the group has had 7 in this campaign and more in the previous one which I fucked up royally, because I'm not at all used to a game that puts so much of an emphasis on gear as DnD and gave them too much money . The closest thing they've gotten to actual combat strategy is the druid casting ensnare, but that only last so long and the reflex save is low enough that it's dropping in effectiveness rapidly. This wouldn't be a problem normally, but the issue arises when they aren't even thinking of ways to improve their tactics or compensate for the fact that their most effective strategy is rapidly losing power. They're probably gonna get a TPK. Which is fine by me, I have plans for that sort of thing.

It's not as big of an issue when I'm DM because I can work around their bullshit without breaking immersion, though it can be a bit of an issue when they ignore rather blatant hints that something's up and think that I'll just give it to them. It's more of a problem when I'm a player.

But yeah, "optimized" players tend to think they're invincible, so they stop using their brains. no strategy in the combat, no investigation or meaningful interaction outside of it. Anybody who always "optimizes" is a shit player, without exception.
#9932 - justakewldewd (02/12/2015) [-]
They're not even making combat strategies? They aren't taking cover, going back to back when surrounded, or doing formations? What, is the only other game they play World of Warcraft or something?

User avatar #9926 - iamkagji (02/11/2015) [-]
I am, but I hate being a Game Master. I much prefer being a player, and I still hate powergaming munchkin faggots as one. Nothing is more annoying than making a character the way my character should be built, integrating it into the game world and getting into it to have a good time, only to be left in the dust because everyone else "optimizes"
#9927 - justakewldewd (02/11/2015) [-]
Hmm. I'm not gonna lie, having players who optimize their characters doesn't seem terrible. It would be the perfect excuse to stat up the craziest shit I can think up and throw it in their general direction.

"So you expected some undead creatures or a creepy cult? Nah, I'm gonna make The Thing from that John Carpenter movie pick you off one by one. Good luck saving against becoming a flesh beast and devouring your friends."
"We have a wizard NPC that can shoot fire out of his hands."
"Are you sure about that?" Wizard moans and then splits open to reveal a giant toothy maw. Maniacal laughter ensues.

But, yeah, expecting to have some good RP and then having that subverted by a bunch of jerks obsessed with being uber-warriors would suck. Are they doing any RP? Talking to NPCs, doing puzzles themselves rather than with rolls, exchanging banter with their adversaries?
