So then they all do penetrating, the hairpin gets a stealth bonus... the garrote has strangle rules. The only thing without a little extra flavor is the stiletto, so perhaps I'll just apply the "Envenom costs 1 SP less but poison wears off after X attacks" and call it a day.
Elfie wrote:Additional question: Would it be unbalanced to say "these weapons are only usable by Assassins" ? Or, like Dueling Weapons, should they be their own weapon group, which Assassins get automatically, and other classes can take whenever they can pick a new weapon group?
Elfie wrote:I kind of figured that requiring a backstab would satisfy the "it's extra hard to get an attack in with one of these."
Elfie wrote: I would disagree about the Bard. I know that in Dragon Age, a Bard is generally a spy, but a spy is not necessarily an assassin. I think a character who wanted to be both Bard and Assassin would have to take both specializations (assuming rules for doing so are in set 3).
Elfie wrote: Garrote: Works just like in the book, but I'm specifically noting that the victim can take no actions until the test is passed, which they may try once per turn at the beginning of their turn.
Elfie wrote:All three weapons are under a new Dexterity (Assassination) focus and weapon group. Assassins get the weapon group (but not the focus) automatically. Using these weapons without the weapon group gains the wielder none of the listed benefits.
