Weapons are generally the first thing most people buy when buying equipment in a role-playing game, and for good reason. Without a good weapon you cannot hope to survive long as the old saying goes, “The stronger outlive the strong”. Therefore you want and need to pick out the best weapon for your character.
When deciding on a weapon you want to look out for these key factors; Attack, Weight, and Cost. Block value is also important but a weapon is designed to be an offensive tool, not a defensive tool. You will want to have a weapon with the highest attack value that you can afford to get. You must also remember to keep the weapon not only below your weight limit but also below your lifting limit, otherwise you will have a hard time using that weapon. Last but not least, if you spend all of your money on that fancy new sword, you won’t have any money to buy armor, potions, rations for surviving on the road, and a bag for anything you might find. Without armor you are as good as dead if you get struck with a weapon, without rations you would probably starve, and without a bag to carry things in you might as well not ever leave your home.
So when deciding on a weapon, make sure it is the weapon with the best attack value that you can afford and still buy other important things, that it will last you for a good while, and that it doesn’t weigh you down.
One last thing, all weapons come with the sheath or harness they need, except ammunition. You will need to provide your own ammunition for those.

2. Repairing Weapons

3. Equipping Weapons
You equip your character's weapons in the Equipped Weapons spot on your character's equipment sheet. A weapon that is not equipped cannot be used. You can change equipped weapons freely while adventuring. During battle, unless you use the skill Quick Weapon Change, it will cost one action to change one equipped weapon.
