For a second I thought you were Gelmra because that's outrageous.

Well if I told you what my aunt cooked up in her lab you'd think she was a manga character and if you saw the real lab you'd be left ... Well, let's just say it's hard to find fitting words for your would be reaction.

And what if I told you she nearly blew up the universe?

I'd say we're getting off topic.

I'll give you that one. Anyway, I believe there was a comment made before about how weapons aren't all that heavy, but I feel the need to point out that I'm less than 110 lbs (less than 50 kg) and about 5'4.5" (apx. 164 cm), so..for me to realistically wield a large weapon is.. :-\

Well it was an accident but still if she really put her mind to it she'd be able to take a gigantic chunk out of the Multiverse so her scientists mind is her most deadly weapon.

I live for Dual weapons. Duel swords/knives/sais/pistols/sickles/. I think that's why Tales of Xillia2 became my favorite Tales of game. You can't beat swapping weapons mid battle~~ <3 <3 <3

...Although lances are also nice. Axes also have their own charm too...

Classical and Primitive yet effective if you know what you're doing and coat the nail in an anticoagulant.

Now muskets are just sexy weapons. Having a volley of them cackle at the enemy then choking up the battlefield with smoke is just... so... human...  :biggrin:

Lets not forget the reload time of them.  20 secs was considered fast.  That is why you all shot a volley walked behind lines and let the next row fire a volley until the first row had enough time to reload their shots to supply an endless volley.

Since it has been a really, really long time, I thought I'd give an update because my favorite weapon types have changed since I've started sort of sparring and considering logistics and other such things. God, I still typed in purple back then. Dear gods why...

Anyway, curved blade weapons still hold my heart, namely the scimitar and the khopesh, however I've become fond of battle hammers and axes lately as well. Perhaps also ball and chain maces. The greatest thing about the khopesh in particular is that its shape makes it excellent for disarming an opponent and going in straight for a counterattack. Now, I do know for a fact that I can wield a whip, so a chain-based weapon might not be out of my reach. Seriously, if you guys ever run into Everlastin again, ask her about the time I ripped her sword from her with a whip.

Nice choice of sword, the Scimitar is an excellent sword for high speed fighting making it perfect for cavalry combat and its thickness and width make it great gor deflecting projectiles such as arrows if you know what you're doing.
Recently though my long forgotten appreciation of the 5.7mm has been revived and I really think the game Black was a bit off on the accuracy of the FNP90 as it's accurate up to 500 meters and can sever a mans torso on full auto, put someone who can wield a FNP90 and a Scimitar on a Harly Davidson you'd have a modern cavalry set up.
