Weapon Fusion
« on: 2015-10-20, 15:01:40 »
If you could fuse two medieval weapons, what would they be, and what would you call your creation? It doesn't have to be practical either, this is just for funsies. I would fuse a broadsword with a small crossbow. I feel like that would make for a nasty sneak attack while engaged in close combat.
Some say that the age of chivalry is past, that the spirit of romance is dead. The age of chivalry is never past, so long as there is a wrong left unredressed on earth.

I'd combine an axe with a spear and a war hammer.

That's ridiculous. It would never work. ;)

I think somebody already beat you to that, uhh, 5 centuries ago. But good idea! ;)

Otherwise called a poleaxe.

Reminds me of a weapon out of Assassins Creed, the gun sword.  I think it was in Unity, but could've been Black Flag.  I found I didn't even notice when it did let off so I had no way of knowing whether or not they worked - and also, never had to be loaded/reloaded.

So what weapons would I fuse?  I dunno...the poleaxe is pretty beastly in and of itself, as are its many variants.  Maybe a bow with short swords that fold out of the ends?  So you could do some staffwork in addition to lighting them up with bodkin points.
