Metal Plate (3.5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search
Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Yet another "big sword" entry. We've already got Buster Sword (3.5e Equipment) and Fullblade, Variant (3.5e Equipment) and who knows what else. The hit penalty doesn't "balance" 2d12 damage.

You can help D&D Wiki by better balancing the mechanics of this page. When the mechanics have been changed so that this template is no longer applicable please remove this template. If you do not understand balance please leave comments on this page's talk page before making any edits.

  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

Barely a sword, it just a big sword-like metal plate with a hilt. The blade is 7 ft. long and 3 ft. wide. Barely usable by any men, this weapon cannot be used mounted, when used while mounted, the Steed will fall thanks to the impressive weight. Only someone with a strength of 18 or more can use it, with a -4 penalty. The penalty reduce to -3 with 20 Strength. -2 with a strength score of 22. The penalty decrease to -1 at 23 Strength but only disappears at 24 Strength. As a point of reference a Metal Plate would be similar to the Dragonslayer from the Manga/Anime Berserk.
