Magic Weapons
URL Copied!

Magic Weapons are artefacts of bloodshed, pure and simple – they grant the wielder extra abilities or an increased characteristic profile so that he might better slay his enemies.

Unless otherwise stated, a Magic Weapon is treated as a hand weapon, and follows the rules for such, with these exceptions:

  • A Magic Weapon cannot be used alongside an additional hand weapon to gain an extra attack.

  • A Magic Weapon cannot be used alongside a shield to gain a parry save.
