Unusual Weapons

I Cant Believe It has compiled a pretty cool list of unusual weapons to look over. It has only one that I recognized, the Man Catcher, as I've used it from time to time in the game, learning of it in Gary Gygax's World Builder.

Its interesting to note that a number of these would be utterly useless against someone in heavy armor. Having read a great deal recently about the Religious Wars between Turkey/Islam and the Spainish Emmpire/Papacy the heavy armor preferred in the west cannot be overstated.

Check em out here.

Having read Stone's (dubious, I'm told) arms and armor tome, I'm familiar with several of them, but the Chu Ko Nu is my favorite. I was delighted when the repeating crossbow showed up in WFRP, and I made use of it several times. Goblin machine gun nest!
