* Two-handed weapon. Characters using two-handed weapons use a d16 on initiative checks. ** Strength modifier applies to damage with this weapon at close range only. *** Damage dealt is always subdual damage. † These weapons are particularly effective when used with the element of surprise. A thief who succeeds in a backstab attempt with one of these weapons uses the second damage value listed. All other classes and all other thief attacks use the first value. ‡ Characters generally purchase normal straightedged daggers, but cultists, cave-dwellers, evil priests, alien worshipers, and other menacing villains carry curvy or ceremonial daggers known as athame, kris, or tumi. # These weapons inflict double damage on a mounted charge. A lance can only be used when mounted.
