  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.

Elegant and graceful, they are Chinese fans which fold out with patterns upon them. Unlike their gentle fabric versions, bladed fans are composed of many sharp thin slat blades. It makes a good secret weapon for those not expecting it, is light, and can still provide the benefits of a fan. If open and the subject is not paying attention directly to it, it takes a DC 15 Spot check to realize it is a weapon. If a person is aware it drops to DC 5.

Paying an extra 10 gp for it, one can increase the DC on identifying it as a weapon by +1.

You can use a full round action which provokes attacks of opportunity to produce a gust of wind similar to the Gust of Wind spell. For every +1 on your strength modifier you can use a full round action to create 3 mph of wind from a medium sized fan. Larger or smaller fans create larger or smaller effects, dealing an extra mph above and below respectfully. For example, a Human with 16 Str makes a 9 mph wind (3x3), while a Old Red Dragon (huge) with Str 35 makes 60 mph winds (5x12).
