How about a trench knife? They are awesome too.


#1465

Yep, a kris is definitely a blade with a serpentine shape. I typically see them in conjunction with people doing “ritual deaths” or sacrifices. Not sure if that’s something we want to have in combat.

I don’t think I’ve seen you in the thread before, so welcome! I’m with you, the trench knife is a great blade. However if I were to compare the US M3 to the Ka-bar -

Summary

M3:

Ka-Bar -

There isn’t much different between the two blades in terms of form. The Ka-Bar was slightly longer than the M3 as well as slightly longer overall. I feel like I’d be running into the same problem as I was with the Bowie knife


#1466

The MC could be a cultist…


#1467

How about a Nano-molecular Whip?


#1468

During the old times yes they use them as a combat weapon and its shape used to tipped poison (I think). But since it is 21st century I dont think Kriss use as a weapon anymore besides ceromonial stuff.


#1469

I’m going to file that under “An eneny will use this.” I like it!

As for the MC - I think I’m going to narrow it down to dagger, stiletto and the katar.


#1470

Well, if I had an actual lightsaber I wouldn’t need anything else… just saying… :wink:

Tbh, if it were me (and thankfully it is not), I’d drop the Ka-Bar, keep the Bowie, and go with something like a stiletto (a stabbing knife with a long, thin blade [Needle from GoT, modern switchblades…]). I mean, you have a chopper (Bowie) and… a skinning knife (Karambit). shrug Just my two cents.


#1471

I dont know if I’m sad or glad that none of my suggestions made it on the list


#1472

If we can use swords we should be able to light it on fire. Flaming swords are a must.


#1473

Indeed. All swords should be flaming… eyes @Sophia (I feel like it’s a running joke by now. :wink: )

Fear not, I have you covered.


#1474

Alright, thinking about stilettos brings me to something else -

I don’t want to go overboard on stats (especially with things like energy and notoriety being a thing I’ll tack on later. Do we want to track how “stealthy” we are vs. something like being a brawler or fighting people head on? The other option would be just let the story flow and assume you can sneak up on people?


#1475

Personally, I love stat checks so I would say stealth vs not stealth


#1476

Using silenced ranged weapons???


#1477

I like stats but I can understand some people’s distaste for them.
Remember singing the pink panther theme song while your tiptoeing about, stealthy it does not make.
Sneaking about and firing a gun silent you are not even with silenced guns they ain’t perfect.


#1478

so that mean if someone hack or throw a EMP granade we are practically useless against the enemy? ( in electronics weapons )

that scene is with the nanomachines of the senator?

how will work that? for what I see a lich is a kind of undean magician


#1479

I’m on stat check stealth team too


#1480

I just thought of grenade that is an improved flash bang a Quasar pulse grenade. However to use this you have to buy an eye upgrade to block the rays or else you will go blind.


#1481

Isnt the MC part of a team…so…wouldnt they also go blind?


#1482

I smell fallout :no_mouth::no_mouth:


#1483

Well, the EMP grenade would act more like the Fallout pulse grenade as it would take out (pure) electronics.
