hi guys
i was thinking about my wisard using short swords because i no people have done this in the past and i was just
going to ask how did they do it and for how many points. Currently i don't have a big enough weapon to
parry with , but i'm ok parrying with short swords




p.s my shorts are made out of bone if that helps at all !




(thanks J.andrews)

I don't think that what your underwear is made of makes a difference Josh.

Wizards are restricted to dagger, staff or spear. You can't use a shield either.

m/c 1st level warrior gives you the skill to use a shield and any single handed weapon. Metal restriction is a problem though... unless magical.

You could try going down the "guild" route and go Knight Warmage.

1) Multiclass warrior to get the ability to use two weapons of shortsword length

Then:.

2) either:
(a) Join Spellbound blades for the additional metal allowance
(b) Write a "because I am a weapons using wizard my metal allowance is increased, but only for weapons, not armour" ability
(c )Write a "because <insert justification> my weapons are made of bone they don't count towards metal allowance" ability
(d) Make yourself a pair of magic shortswords, or buy them from someone else
(e) Get a pair of bo-sticks and use them instead of swords.

All of these have been used in the past - if you have the phys reps the bone weapon one is a good approach because (if the ability is properly written) they are also immune to magnetise, heat metal and suchlike. I think it cost me about 40 points, for a fae wizard m/classed Ranger.

Oh and for the thread- Use a staff josh, 2hands in front of you like your punting down a river somewhere.

Lets face it young man - how does gandalf do it in the movies....... staff and sword.

i say multiclass powermonger. Gives you E-skill and forearm parry!

then points app post powermonger that all skills related to daggers from MC now relate to short sword/broadsword tongue.gif

and if you do as lucy says and stick a yellow paper in saying that your short swords "are" made of bone then forget spellbound blades. Powermonger then Points app your skill to short swords...
