Looking for 2-Handed Weapon Warrior


I'm looking for a warrior type that specializes using 2-handed [sign in to see URL] I can't find any.

Anyone know of a Warrior Type that specializes using 2-handed weapons?

If not, I'll look at making one up and posting it for critics in about a week.

Re: Looking for 2-Handed Weapon Warrior


The Ogre character, presented in one of the magazines, can use two-handed weapons like one-handed weapons without suffering the usual two-handed weapon penalties for doing so.

I think the Lord of Aenarion, another magazine character, has a rule that while using a two-handed weapon with both hands he does NOT suffer any associated penalties (no shield though, of course).

So, the Lord of Aenarion might be the closest to what you are looking for -- at least of the official and semi-official Warriors.

Of the original common weapons, I think primarily that we are talking about the Great Sword as having penalties (apart from the restriction of not using a shield) which are unique to a two-handed weapon, though it is not too clear. It causes -1 Attack and -1 Initiative. With this in mind, I assume the Ogre and the Lord of Aenarion would not suffer these penalties.

Of the custom/home-brew Warriors, I think the Swordmaster of Hoeth (the one by Luminos), which I just looked up in the Museum site, might be closest to what you are looking for. Here are some quotes from his rules:

quote:

Starting Skill - Deflect Shot

The Swordmaster is so quick with his blade that he can often swipe away an arrow before it hits him. All enemies armed with bows or crossbows are -1 to hit when attacking him with those weapons. This skill only works if the Swordmaster wields a two-handed sword.



quote:

The Swordmaster of Hoeth increases his skill with two-handed swords and gains attribute increases as he goes up battle-levels.



See the full rules for all the details.

]Swordmaster of Hoeth, by Luminos
(I just copied it to my site {with permission previously given}, though not added to the Custom Characters page yet).

Re: Looking for 2-Handed Weapon Warrior


....why is it that the 2 warrior classes are both for Elves?


Have a feeling I'm going to end up making a warrior class based something on the Barbarian.

Well, I have no idea why.

I would be interested to see what you come up with -- and host it on my site too, if you're willing to share your work.
