Axes

 
 

Axes are another weapon that started out as a tool. The original axes were first created for cutting wood. It just so happens that they were also great at cutting into foes. The first race to make use of the axe as a combat weapon was the very industrial dwarf. Others soon adopted the axe as both a tool and a weapon and eventually there were axes made specifically for combat.

Axes deal damage not because of their sharpness, but because of the wedge of the blade and the weight behind it. This allows the axe to chop instead of slash through its target. Cloth armor and wood shields are useless against an axe, therefore any target wearing solely cloth armor can have its PR ignored if you are wielding an axe, and if the target blocks with a wooded shield it is as if the target isn't blocking at all.

If the axe wielder possesses the Weapons Mastery in Axes ability, your attacks will cause chopping damage.

  • Chopping damage ignores cloth armor PR. Chopping 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.
  • Chopping attacks also have a 20% chance of causing the Dazed status effect. This is due to the blunt force nature of a heavy axe smashing into armor.
  • And finally chipping attacks also decrease the target's armor faster, similar to piercing weapons, but being a wider blade with more weight behind the attack the target's PR decreases by double per attack.


The flat edges and back of the axe head can be used as a bludgeoning weapon dealing 15% less damage.
