I think it would be cool to be able to weild two handed swords in both hands if your strength is high enough,like in baldurs gate.Something else that would be cool is being able to put poison on your blade.Any insight?

In my opinion dual-wielding two two-handed swords, or bihanders would be ineffective and would not look as great as wielding just one bihander. The reason being that each individual weapon requires its own fighting style in order to be most effective. Similarly, short swords, spears, halberds, sabers, and even daggers, all require a different style of martial application. Dual-wielding greatswords would be like dualwielding spears. This feat is not impossible to do, especially if you are a strong warrior, yet fighting with one spear would be a bit deadlier.
In addition the wielding of two bihanders would not be as aesthetically beautiful as with just one bihander. Instead of having a warrior making accurate cuts and parries, you would just have a guy who looks like he is clumsily bashing his opponents down.
On the other hand, dual wielding two short swords, sabers, longswords, or especially two katanas, would be both highly effective and probably the most elegant way to cutting down enemies (when dual-wielding).

On the other hand I definatly agree with creating poisons to coat either blades or arrows. But didn't morrowind already have poisoned blades and arrows?

One kind of weapon I definatly would like to wield, would be a rediculously large and heavy bihander (I guess you can already tell on how much I like greatswords). I would also suggest the creation of more special parrying moves which allow you to immediatly counter. Such as deflecting a blade, moving in, bashing the pommel to the head of the opponent, and finally cutting him down while he is distracted.

*Shoots Shogun Ryudan with a sniper rifle for halfway stealing his name*

*Ahem* Now that that is cleared up....

Ryudan basically took the words out of my mouth on duel wielding. It would be a nice touch for something not much biger than a tanto, but would be stupid for something like two claymores.

And Morrowind had a poison enchantment. Now what would be neat is buying a poison then applying it to your sword so it would be like the MW poison enchantment, except it would only last through a few hits.

*Sorry ShogunSniper... I'm totally new here and I had no idea that the title Shogun was already given away. I guess I can always change it if it bothers you too much.*

Anyway I would not mind seeing a few weapons from cultures other than of Middle European origin.

its ok, i was just foolin with ya tongue.gif


katanas, wakizashis, tantos, and dai-katanas are in, those are japanese.... otherwise what other weapons are there other than guns? when did compound bows come into play?


what would be interesting maybe for a mod or something are bottles that when thrown explode into flames like an incindiary grenade (yes, i stole that idea from the rp, so sue me)

I'd like to see bronze knuckles which would fall under hand to hand. I'd also like to see a whip, just to screw with people.

I will start making a list of weapons from almost every culture on the world. I just wonder if it would also be possible to include the races and armor of that culture with their weapons. Since this list would use up a lot of space, I think I will start with weaponry from the Arabia, Persia, and India.

Arabia and Persia:
-Scimitar (of course!)
-Curved double-bladed sword (this one looks like a scimitar but its blade splits towards the end creating a fork)
-Shamshir
-Talwar
-Saif
-other axes, spears, and maces in arab and persian styles

India (way too many cool looking weapons to write them all down!)
-Moplah knives
-Yatagan Blades
-Punch Dagger (one on each hand)
-Quaddara (is this Indian or Arabian or Persian?)
-Pattisa (the blade of this sword grows wider towards its tip)
-Pata (the handguard of this dagger is flat and its grip is looped)
-Bladed Guantlets
-Axes (lots of odd and deadly looking ones)
-Kaman (Indian bow)
-Chakram (I suppose these are throwing weapons?)

Nepal and Tibet:
-Kora
-Sacrificial Axes
-Dung (spear)

Alright, tell me what you think of these weapons, and whether or not it would be possible to include any of these in the game. Feel free to add any other kinds of weapons or make any corrections of my list. I would really appreciate it!
I think it would also be fun to fight with or/and against warriors from Arabia, Persia, and India, who are using the weapons listed here.
I would also like to write down the website on which I found most of the weapons, but I don't know whether the rules allow me to write down the e-mail address or not.

knuckles, those punching daggers, and just wearing gauntlets in general would make nice additions/should raise hand to hand attack power.

I agree with using duel weapons but not being able to block your opponets attacks is the downfall.

Then you'll be happy to know there will be no dual wielding until the mod comes out.

Not really. Makes combat more balanced and therefore more fun.

dual wielding would be tight. id like to see actually making weapons from raw materials where you could design and craft them how you want.

They're not that great, I'd prefer a regular sword.
