Yes, I agree M'ruk.  The overview also says this can pierce armour.  Which means it needs to get alot of velocity and force behind it.  We may have to scrap that idea and instead say it is small and accurate enough to strike in between armour plating in in between chainmail rings.  I cannot imagine a thrown, blown or dropped dart could ever pierce armour. 

I watch Deadliest Warrior and I have been amazed at the amount of force it takes to pierce armour (metal armour at least).

I love that show.  My only beef was that the pirate beat the knight... I'm not convinced on that episode

Just watched that one 3 days ago. Results are always skeptical (Slitheren studios indeed :P).  It all came down to that big blunderbuss (got 352 of the 1000 kills).  Now that thing actually pierced armour.  However the knights morningstar was AMAZING.  Holy crap.

So I should say it is a thrown or blown weapon? And that it is accurate enough to go through the weak spots of armour?

It would fall under missile weapons in the sub-heading of "ammunition" like the shatterhead arrow I think.

Ok, I'll start on it now.

EDIT: Just realized, doesn't that mean it will have to be completely removed from the thrown weapons section?

Valan peeks around the doorway to make sure no one is looking and snatches up the Caeh-Fish rapier and a curious little glove of R'unorian origin.

From the Kyranian Men entry:

The Scions of Thromgolin I: Gilden "Gil" Thromgolin
He develops a stronger bow for his archers and he names it the "Bolt Bow" as it doesn't shoot an arrow but a metal bolt. It doesn't have the distance that a regular bow has, but the bolt can pierce heavy armour. --> Obviously a crossbow, or a crossbow type of weapon.

And the following is armour (well a shield) ... but thought it should be included here as well ...

Sengren "Ren" Thromgolin
He designs rounded shields with centers that are thicker and stronger to protect his men from archers.

You may also want to look in the Kyranian Military entry to see if there's any information on these weapons/armours in there.

Updated the main list of weapons needing entries  and removed a bunch of the boring axes from the list.  I also added the following statement:

It is preferable to develop weapons specific to a tribe (don't forget about the Orcs, Elves and hobbits etc.)  So when choosing a weapon below if it is not already associated with certain group then lets choose one and make the entry fun and unique.

*Cloaked in a black robe and hood, he slides into the room. Takes the contract for the Jhehellrhim Crossbow and leaves, leaving behind a small purse of sans for the servants.*

On another ntoe,

I love Deadliest Warrior as well, and until I saw it, I didn't think there was a point in having armor.

List could use an update Seeker. :D
Though check your PMs, I've a thought.

The weapons that need entries has been folded into the Miscelaneous proposals thread. I've borrowed the bestiary system since some of the weapons do need a more careful hand than others to make sure they're developed "right", and others certainly warrant the involvement of the regional experts.
