Hello.  I am a heavy medieval weapons specialist, and I have done an extensive amount of research on nearly all weapons medieval.  And I noticed that your weapons section seemed to have some minor mistakes (may be intentional) and that the weapons overview seemed a little confusing.

I was wondering if you all might like for me to revamp the weapons section and get everything categorized by the type of weapon it is, and then listing it from there.  I will also be willing to add new weapons that I believe would have naturally developed over time (i.e. a halberd, sai and the like).

But of course, everything shall be posted for your input and then your final (dis)approval.  If you're interested, feel free to reply!

Hello and welcome Ken!    :wave  


I'm not interested in weapons, but others are! Your offer looks great and we surely like to have you here. Maybe you will even become our weapons master!  :)  

What about introducing yourself in the Newbie, Recruitment etc forum above?

See you around!

Hello Ken!

I can only second Talia's post - I personally think it would be great if you could help with weapons:)  Especially as I see that you've already posted a first entry, which is inthe correct format and has Santharian references integrated etc. - I'll take a closer look when I have some more time, but it looks quite good from what I can see:D

Indeed it's important on the one hand to get some sort of proper categorization into our weapons and on the other hand to keep things as "Santhariarized" as possible, so all kinds of references, stories, origins etc. are very important to add to the main information contained in the entry.

So yup, I'm all for it and would be happy if you can help out here! :thumbup

Thank you all for your encouragement.  I’ve actually been with Santh for a little while, so I know my way around decently well.  So I hope I don’t disappoint you with quality lower than you’re used to.  Anyways, I shall begin by regrouping all of the current weapons already made, and most likely revising some of them.

All the weapons I’ll be working with, however, are mundane items of normal iron and steel.  Enchanted, cursed, ethereal, or otherwise abnormal weapons are well beyond my capabilities.

Also, I dabble a little bit in art.  Doing sketches mainly, but I’d be happy to supply some new artwork for any weapons that don’t have some already.  My style’s a little different from most of Santharia’s thus far, but it may still suffice.

See you around the boards!

Just a suggestion (in case your weren't already planning to do so), but maybe you could try and connect most weaponry with a certain tribe/race? Like you connected the lances with the Centoraurians.

Otherwise, keep up the good work :thumbup

*whew* Now that I'm done posting the new categories that I have thought of, to answer to you, Marvin.  I was actually thinking of tying different variations of weapons to the various tribes.  Like, a claymore for a tribe of human, and zweihander for a different tribe.  Same function, in essence the same sword, but different strokes for different folks.  So yes, I look forward to designing these interesting weapons for the various people.

I was thinking about different kinds of weapons for different races/tribes as well, not just different swords for each tribe. Dwarves for example will prefer axes and hammers above swords. Or some tribes could be mostly relying on pikemen, swordsmen, light/heavy cavalry,... Stuff like that.

The Kasumarii for example have their own unique set of weaponry that isn't used anywhere else.

I know, that's why I gave it as an example. Maybe other weapons (mostly the 'special' ones, as about everyone will know a sword, spear, bow,...) could be related to tribes/races as well. Maybe they could be more common that the moonblades and such, but they could origin from one tribe (like the lance was first used by the Centoraurians and the was adopted by the rest of Santharia afterwards).

Lances would likely have also been developed (separately) by the Kuglimz people as they are famed throughout Sarvonia for their large heavy warhorses and their horsemanship.  And a recent picture by Eratin shows a mounted Kuglim warrior holding a lance.

The lance and the spear are commonly mistaken for one another.  And with pictures, well... it would be hard to tell a lance from a spear unless the lance had a hand-guard.

Nonetheless, as my attention has shifted away from the lance for now, I think I shall simply leave the Kuglim warrior's weapon as just a spear...  Unless the picture is from after the first Sarvonian War.  Then it would be very likely for the Kuglimz to wield the lance since they are renown for their horsemanship.  So all in all, that's just a timing issue.
