I'd allow a main gauche that costs 10gp, can't be thrown, and grants equivalent AC bonus to a shield.

When making multiple attacks against man-types (FC of 2 men or more) the player may declare that one of the attacks is made with the off-hand weapon. This is purely for flavor-badass-descriptive purposes and does not grant tangible mechanical benefits. Shield-wielding characters may similarly choose to declare a shield-bash as one of their attacks.

Thanks in advance!


Hobbets move at the same rate as men. Their stride is shorter, but their feet move quicker, like a small dog keeping pace with its master. Speedy little murder-hobos, they are.

Gracias. I'll deduct an additional 7gp and make sure my stats are current.

Ah! Just realized that my character will match my Avatar again! That hasn't happened since before Desmond ate a dungeon fruit from an upside down tree and grew himself a second head...

I wish these forums had a "like" button. I'd be handing them out like halloween candy just about now. I'm loving this game, and we haven't even gotten to the good stuff!

Re: Out Of Character

Mush, was driving to work this morning with Spotify playing one of its mix playlists for me (some Celtic music I enjoy) and a song by Brian Finnegan started playing.

But it wasn't the song that caught my attention, it was the name of the album it was on.

"The Ravishing Genius of Bones"

It would have made a great character name in the old Deep Arkham game...

I'm listening now. It's very nice. Good background music for Hobbet stories! :)
