  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.

A Nodachi is a very sharp two-handed curved sword. Nodachi only have one edge, they are basically two-handed version of Katana. Nodachi are devastating against unarmored opponents but they lose potency against heavily armored opponents. Nodachi take a penalty to Attack and Damage against enemy with Medium or Heavy Armor (Mithral (or similar effect) armor count as they original category to determine if the Nodachi take a penalty or not.). Against Medium Armor Nodachi have -1 to Attack and Damages, against Heavy Armor the penalty rise to -2.
