Fullblade by Another Name?

That statement is just as valid with many other axes and swords;
- The dwarven waraxe stats go by the name "bastard sword,"
- the greataxe stats go by the name "greatsword,"
- the battleaxe stats go by the name "longsword,"
- the handaxe stats go by the name "shortsword," and
- the orc double axe stats go by the name "two-bladed sword."
I was actually going for a two-handed version of dwarven waraxe. Admittedly, it's not the most imaginative weapon, but it does serve as another option for those that prefer axes over swords. Additionally, given that the fullblade is Product Identity, its stats can't be posted on the wiki. So the dwarven broadaxe is also available for those that lack the appropriate sources (i.e. Arms and Equipment Guide and Sword and Fist), but still want an obnoxiously large weapon (under the revised 3.5 rules, no less). —Sledged (talk) 12:34, 27 May 2009 (MDT)
- Yeah, I don't think this should be deleted, either. There's nothing really wrong with it. Can the delete template be removed? --TheWarforgedArtificer 23:25, 28 July 2009 (MDT)
- It reminds me of the warmace, and when I use it in games, it use the warmace's AC penalty rather than a Strength requirement. Atypicaloracle
- The difference between sword weapons and axe weapons is mostly in the criticals. Swords do 19-20/x2 and axes do x3. Also the greataxe does slightly less and not bell-curved damage than the greatsword (1d12 instead of 2d6). Also some swords can do piercing damage instead of slashing. 18.104.22.168 19:49, 3 March 2010 (UTC)
