Went to the museum today. In the Southern People and People's of the Pacific part they had a variety of weapons and tools from the Pacific. Thought I would share here as they're cool, probably not that common overseas and Darksun inspiration.

Clubs from Fiji/Tonga/Niue. No clubs used in Mandalorian though.

Papua New Guinea. Those spears are quite long. Would hurt.

FWIW, the Encyclopedia of Weapons is one of my favorite non-gaming resource books for RPGs. Lots of good stuff!


And Palladium released this gem a few decades ago:

While there isn’t much real depth to the Compendium, it covers a LOT of different gear around the world. Most importantly, there’s also a conversion guide that gives you a general idea of how to model any of the gear within it in systems other than Palladium’s.

In the fifth photo down (the first of the Papua New Guinea ones), in the center of that picture, is that a big heavy hook, or is it actually bladed on the inner edge like a scythe? Or maybe that's the grip? I can't quite figure out what that weapon is all about.

Inner edge was kinda sharp. Some sort of club.

The elemental evil storyline had the Crushing Wave Reaver with this.

Sharktooth Longsword: +4 to hit, (1d8+2). If opponent is wearing no armor the damage is (2d8+2)

Nice. Do you happen to know the real world name for these? I looked it up with google, and if you search "Koa Sword" it's the first thing that pops up, but I don't know if that's its real name.

I have no idea.

I was originally going to post about my only time playing Dark Sun, but decided to say something constructive instead.
 

Level Up!
