Twighlight of the Gods
Here are listed additional weapons and their descriptions.
musket—a firearm that shoots a lead shot. Powered by powder and ignited with flint. Only the warsmiths of Sanctuary produce this product. The weapon is not popular outside of Sanctuary because of the hi-cost of production, the scarcity of powder, and its relative slow load time compared to bows and crossbows.
kanabō—(metallic staff) is an iron or steel club used in feudal Japan as a weapon. It was constructed out of heavy oak wood, and covered with some form of metal from the end to the middle, with metal studs along the metal-shod end. Later versions were made entirely out of metal, but shorter. It was this later version that many popular pictures of Japanese demons carry. It is said to be one of the heaviest hand weapons ever wielded.
Nunchaku (chain sticks) is a traditional weapon of the Okinawan kobudō weapons set and consists of two sticks connected at their ends with a short chain or rope.
The rope dart or rope javelin also known as Jōhyō in Japanese, is one of the flexible weapons in Chinese martial arts. Other weapons in this family include the meteor hammer, flying claws, and chain whip. Although the flexible weapons share similar movements, each weapon has its own specific techniques.
A Katara or Katar , also known as a suwaiya or Bundi dagger, is a type of short punching sword that is native to India and popular elsewhere for swift and quick attacks. It was used by Indian warriors called Rajputs. It is notable for its horizontal hand grip, which results in the blade of the sword sitting above the user’s knuckles. Three other examples of bladed weapons native and unique to India are the Khanda, Urumi and Pata.
The falcata is a type of sword typical of Pre-Roman Hispania (the Iberian Peninsula, modern Spain and Portugal), similar to the Greek kopis or Nepalese kukri.
A caltrop (also known as caltrap, galtrop, cheval trap, galthrap, galtrap, calthrop, crow’s foot1) is an antipersonnel weapon made up of two or more sharp nails or spines arranged in such a manner that one of them always points upward from a stable base (for example, a tetrahedron). They may be thought of as the landmines of antiquity, useful to shape the battlefield and force the enemy into certain paths and approaches, or to provide a passive defense as part of a defensive works system.
cestus—The first version of a battle cestus was a series of leather thongs that were tied over the hand. Greeks used them in their hand-to-hand competitions, where only knock out mattered. Romans modified the construction by adding metal parts, including spikes, studs, and iron plates. Variants of this weapon include the myrmex or “limb-piercer”, and the originally Greek sphairai, thin leather thongs with cutting blades.
The macuahuitl (macana) (a name derived from the Nahuatl language) is a weapon shaped like a wooden sword. Its sides are embedded with prismatic blades made from obsidian, a volcanic glass stone frequently used for tool making by the Aztec and other pre-Columbian Mesoamerican cultures.
Warclub—wooden club used by native Americans in north america. usually angled at an elbow with a metal spike or blade at the angle.
