Organic Weapons
Some civilizations develop technologies that revolvexclusively around bio-engineering. They grow lving houses, living tools
and weapons, sometimes even living stahips.

Bio-technology can be unnerving to use. Tools breate or shed dandruff or pulse warmly in your graspWeapons may need to

Most Player Characters s hail from worlds that takemore familiar technological paths, so the weaporiisted below will largely
be found in the hands of NPCs. If a Player Character picks up a bio-weapon, the DM should mak an effort to bring across a
sense of its strangeness

Please note that while a lot of these weapons areffectively Constructs in game terms, by no means a lof them are. Some
biological weapons have enough brain-power tmake limited decisions on their own, while othersre just tools made of meat.
At times the distinction can be conrtsing. Most Scuttlebombs, for example, have to trck targets and find their way across
uneven terrain. This require enough moxie that it's best to treat them as biological Constructs. Most Living Torpedoes, on
the other hand, require oi more wits than are required to glide over to a tget square and explode. In game terms, they're

Futuristic Melee Weapons
Just because the future offers so many new ways to melt, fry, atomize and
blow enormous holes through your enemies at a distance doesn't mean that
melee weapons will die out. On the contrary, the future holds myriad
marvelous ways to chop, bash, mangle and carve your enemies as well!
The following section enumerates the rippers, slicers, manglers and maulers
of tomorrow, from simple weapons made of futuristic alloys that have
interesting new slashing and smashing properties, to the mighty fusion
swords that only mystic space-knights ever wield (chiefly because they're so
expensive). The keys to the toybox are yours. Go knock yourself out. Or
better yet, go knock someone else out. Or better still, kill them--and see you
do it reeeeal tasty-like.

Advanced Materials Weapons
Melee weapons made from strange new alloys, hyper-advanced
synthetic materials, or produced by futuristic manufacturing techniques
which make them more effective than the best present-day Masterwork
equivalents.
These weapons aren’t always lighter or more durable than their early 21st
century counterparts, but they’re all more efficient at cutting, piercing,

Hypersharp Weapons
Monofilament wire has many uses, few of them nice. It's an amazing, nigh -
indestructible substance, a wire made from a single molecule, hundreds of
times stronger than titanium and finer than the smallest hair, while
thousands of times sharper than the sharpest surgical steel. It didn't take
long for people to start hurting one another with it.
Of course, swinging a loop of nearly invisible monofilament at your
opponent is nearly as dangerous to you as it is to them, so combatants
insane enough to use it in its raw form weeded themselves out pretty
quickly. It is common to find normal weapons edged with monofilament
wire, making them unbelievably sharp and yet slightly less dangerous to the
wielder.

Vibronic Weapons
Also known as vibroblades, these weapons enhance their cutting power by
vibrating at amazing speed. They tend to be quite dull, since they aren't
getting much of their penetration from having a sharp edge and thinner
blades tend not to hold up to the wear and tear caused by the constant
vibration.
When switched on, a vibroblade blurs faintly around the edges and emits a
deep, painful hum which is just barely audible to the human ear, but
unpleasant nonetheless. The sound can be quite upsetting to certain animals.
It doesn't seem to come from anywhere, making it hard to pinpoint the user's
location, but it is absolutely distinctive. If you turn on a vibroblade, anyone
within earshot who has heard one before will instantly know what it is, even if
they can't quite place the range or direction.
There have been experiments in combining hypersharp monowire-edged
weapons with vibroblade technology, but the results 1d6+2

have a core made of ultra-dense, collapsed matter, and should be impossible
to lift, but each one is equipped with a small antigravity engine that allows it to
be picked up. The weapon may be light enough to wield, but it has lost none
of its gigantic mass, and hits with the force of a speeding truck.
Most cultures advanced enough to produce something like this have better
things to use their super-science on than bashing one another over the head,
so you can really only buy Superheavy weapons from hyper-advanced societies
that have grown extremely bored and/or malignant. Unscrupulous emissaries
from Uber-civilizations may sell them to louts in horned helmets whose
cultures are still at the stage where bashing one another over the head
occupies a lot of their time, or just hand them out to guys who look like they
would use them in amusingly destructive ways.
There are two whopping drawbacks to using Superheavy weapons. The first is
that the antigravity generator eventually runs out of power, and the weapon
will sit there, useless and unmovable until its energy cell is replaced.
The second is that while a superheavy weapon strikes the target with
tremendous force, all that colossal momentum has to go somewhere if it
misses. If a character fails to hit the target with a superheavy melee weapon
they must make a Reflexes Saving Throw vs. DC 15. If they fail, the weapon
spins them around helplessly and they are instantly facing in a random
direction. They must then make another Reflexes Saving Throw vs. DC 12 to 73

In zero gravity, they won't fall down, but will have to make a Strength Roll vs.
DC 20 to stop spinning. Let them roll once per round until they succeed, let go

Fusion
In most campaigns, fusion bladesBlades
are rare--the legendary weapons of some
mystical order of star knights or other. They will tend not to be found on the
shelf of your local army surplus store or pawn shop, and any price listed here
for one is strictly tentative.
They work by projecting a blade shaped plasma flame, so hot that it is actually
undergoing nuclear fusion at its core. How an energy discharge of this
intensity is kept under control is a tightly guarded secret, but there seems to
be some kind of force field containing the flame. There are a number of
different types of fusion blade--the technology can be used to mimic virtually
any kind of bladed slashing weapon. Some of Energy

An often overlooked variation on the bow, a slingshot can be a serious

Small, cheap, easy to conceal and quick to aim, a slingshot can also have a
surprising amount of stopping power, particularly when you use it to launch

Decadent or tradition-bound societies might apply advanced technology to
bows and arrows. And they may have broader uses in a futuristic setting than
for gladiatorial combat and ceremonial hunts. Bows and arrows actually have
some surprising advantages on the post-modern battlefield. They are quiet
and leave no chemical or energy signature for sensors to pick up. They have
excellent penetration against body armor and in the hands of a sufficiently
skilled marksman their range is comparable to firearms. Some armies might
use bows and arrows as a kind of low-tech, stealthy grenade launcher and
design arrows that explode, or carry gas weapons or electroshock devices or
all sorts of other odd effects (especially if these cultures are big on comic
books).

Harpoon Guns
It is possible for weapons technology to take some strange side turns. The
guns listed below all launch spears or spikes instead of bullets. Some of them
(like the underwater spearguns made for fishing) are perfectly compatible
with the history of our own weapons technology, while others (like the "spike
pistol") are probably the product of worlds where the whole evolution of
projectile weapons took a very different course. As a rule, spearguns have a
lot of stopping power and a limited range. They are quiet but not easy to
conceal.

Spears and Spearguns
To help avoid confusion, we have listed four different categories beneath:
Spears and Spearguns, Harpoons and Harpoon Guns, Giant Harpoons and

Aerosol
Weapons

Largely used for self-defense, aerosol weapons spray the target with one or
another noxious substance. They tend to be small, sometimes small enough to
wear on a keychain, and are often disposable.
Their effects are as variable as the whole vast range of things you wouldn't
want sprayed in your eyes. Some do subdual damage, others etch the
target's skin with caustic chemicals, some burst into flame on contact or
convey insidious toxins. As a rule, the more destructive the effects of an
aerosol weapon, the more likely it is to be illegal.
