Scythes

 
 

Scythes are traditionally a tool and not a weapon. Developed for the farmer, these tools were originally meant to cut grass, wheat, corn, and to clear brush. Being a very sharp tool that could easily cut through the brush, farmers soon came to depend on the scythe for protection from the wild creatures and bandits that would attack their homestead. Over time, the symbolism of the scythe made it appealing to some warriors which lead to the scythe becoming a fearsome weapon. 

Scythes are a slashing weapon, however because of the design of the scythe wielders of scythes can benefit from special attack bonuses borrowed from both slashing attacks and chopping attacks. If the scythe user has the Weapons Mastery in Scythes ability, your attacks will cause slashing damage. Slashing damage ignores 25% of leather armor PR. Slashing attacks can also cause Bleeding Out status effect if the target is not armored if you make a critical hit, reducing the target's hp by 1d10 round for 4 rounds or until bandaged.

The handle of the staff can be used as a bludgeoning weapon, dealing 25% less damage. The back end of the scythe head can also be used as a bludgeoning weapon, dealing 10% less damage.
