How often have your PC's wanted to wield weird items as weapons?I just had a a cleric who wanted to wield "one of those catholic smoke-thingies" e.i. censer, as a weapon. As stupid as I thought it was at the moment, I wasn't going to stop him. I gave it the rules as if it was a one-size bigger flail, and told him he'd have to take "weapon proficiency: religious weapons - battle censer" not to have -4 on his rolls. Good thing he met early, so I didn't have to slow down the game to figure out what a "smoke-thingie" was, and how I was going to make it work. Plus side; all there is always a pleasant aroma around the party, and in retrospect, the concept is very, very lulz. Do you players spring stuff like that on you too? In before VGcats.
I have a grave robber that has a spade as a hand weapon in a WHFRP campaign.
Oversized pipe wrench, like the TF2 Engineer. Used stats for a sledgehammer.
In a science fiction game I've had players go nuts with the tools available, using everything from hullcutters to high tech adhesives in fights.
>>805404Win. Pure and simple.
Riddick-fag DM here. My campaign is still going, but we've had some inventive use of everyday objects by the characters. My fave? The bottle cap sharpened into a shank.
>>805410I still think 'Death By Tea-Cup' would make for an AWESOME epitath.
One of my PCs used a playstation 2 controller as a weapon in a modern setting game we played.
>>805412Keys give +4 to intimidation rolls.
>>805412 Epitaph.Spelling fixed.
>>805418Thanks muchly. Wasn't sure about that one.
>>805425You pump them quads, Mouse! OH YEAH!
>>805426I'm sorry, but Admiral Ackbar's in another thread
кадилом по мудилам...
>>805658Well played, Russian anonymous.
I played a game where a player combined monk fighting with immovable rods.
Just occured to me - Don't the Skaven Plague Monks wield a similiar weapon to what OP described?
Sorceror who wielded a lantern. With the -4 attack penalty.Managed to finish off quite a few opponents with that thing, surprisingly.
>>805404SPADES FUCK YEAH also in before scythes.
Lollerz, once I played a character who wanted to wield a scythe, but da DM said it was too silly.Wow, still no rat-flail?
>>805695I was going to say in before Plague Censer, but...in during plague censer.
Beating down a queen with the head of her recently deceased king?
>>805740Crown on, or off?
>>805765first one, then the other
>>805796That's a brazier.
>>805846It's pronounced "Brassiere"
>>805796And the strangest thing about that is he carries an axe in his left hand - but never uses it to attack. In none of his attack animations.
Candelabra. What a fight that was.
I once was imprisoned, and it was either wait a bagillion years for my comrades to bail me out, after they finished what ever they where doing, or...Sharpen a food tray by scraping it on the stone wall, and sever the guard's head from his body when he came in for inspection by ramming him up against a wall with it.I chose option 2. It then became a running gag with my group to kill people with make-shift weapons similar to that.
>>805402I'd say "counts as flail", and let him use it without wasting a feat. Awesome ideas like that should be encouraged.

>>805900Inb4 Diablo 2.
A guy who's playing a favored soul in my party uses a walking stick as a weapon. The fun part is that the stick has two hidden blades, so it transforms into a double-bladed sword.
>>805995The sleek stylishness of a simple sword-cane is superior to any sort of retarded double-sword.
>>805995Oh, anonymous. Why do you mistake the worst things for the best things?
my current char. is fight only with metal shavings
this guy had a censor weapon. he also used the smoke to enter a dream world where he pulled out creatures to summon.
>>806040Mine is fighting without shaving.
i have a jewish rabbi in my group who bludgens zombies with a fist-sized star of david.
>>806071Mine is fighting WHILE shaving. Can cause rather large problems when fighting an extended battle. One time I had to strip naked and shave my legs to keep fighting.
>>806090I bet the fight ended pretty quickly after that.
>>806070You know, he was a pretty cool character.BAD END, though.
Oh, you mean LIKE A MORNING STAR?
>>806095You know that scene from Braveheart, where they're mooning the enemy, and they start firing bows? And one of the guys doesn't get behind his shield and gets shot through the ass? Yeah. :(
I was playing an Iron Kingdoms gobber who had improvised weapon prof, so you know all kinds of crazy shit went down.Best one was when a party member died at the hands of undead, and I needed a bludgeoning weapon to beat DR. I had all piercing and slashing, so I ripped off his barely-hanging-on leg, greave still attached, and used it to beat down the undead.The look on the poor player's face when I did that was priceless. It's not like he was coming back or anything, it was the IK, but the surprise was hilarious.
All the time. Most bizzare weapon I can recall one of my characters using was a peasant who had been drafted into the army and ended up as a siege engineer and then became a mercenary using a hoe as his weapon for his entire career. He had swords and maces and a crossbow, but his main weapon was his hoe, which started off as just a regular hoe and ended up as an ornate and improved weapon black with dried blood.
>>806650YOU ARE A NAMEFAG.YOU BROWSE 4CHAN. YOU LIKE LOLI AND FOOTSEX.
In an Iron Kingdoms game I was in, our Bodger, having lost all his other possible weapons of use, ripped the head off of a downed 'Jack and used it as a weapon.
I was disarmed once, and used my Decanter of Endless water to actually finish off an enemy. We both had 3 hp left. I rolled a 4 for damage and won the day.
>>805402I actually ENCOURAGE this stuff in my games. Of course, I'm running Exalted, so that's kinda the point of Exalted.
I give my bosses and stuff weapons like this all the time. Gives them more flavor than just bastard swords and shit.I planned to use a censer with an intelligent undead being (some kinda priestly figure, didn't really figure that one out) waving one of these around that belched noxious vapours.
once, in an Iron Kingdoms campaign, my party was trapped in a room by undead blocking both doors being held at bay by our cleric. So my monk, and my friend's Fighter, not having any ranged weapons on us at the time, began grabbing anything. I flipped a chair up and chucked it, and my friend took a zombie's head off with a natural 20 throw of a roulette wheel.
The PCs once found an artifact, wonderfully named, The Big Book of Kord. Guess what it was about? It had the power to grant the weilder proficiency with whatever weapon they placed on the book. So the party's half-orc monk grabbed a goblin and put it on the book. This put the goblin into stasis, and granted the half-orc weapon prof: goblin.The half-orc then proceeded to put a spike through the goblin's head, and wrap him in barbed wire, creating a living barbedwire nailbat. ...using a goblin.
Yeah well, my character in one of our WHFRP games carries his dead cat, which is counted as an improvised weapon.
Had a guy who used a chicken in a cage on a stick as a weapon. It was the only thing to survive the party wipe, and was set free into the wild in the epilogue.
>>806695In PS:T your severed arm is a magical club you can find.
A good deal of my campaigns revolved around following the advice of a talking shovel. The shovel was also used as a weapon by one of the characters. It liked whenever it got covered in blood or smashed a skull in.
I'm making a fighter who uses a crowbar as his main weapon. It's just plain useful
>>806716In b4 Stanley Gimble.
>>806729Until you can control gravity, anyways.
Played a game of Shadowrun once where I wielded a 2 liter cola bottle full of holy water as a weapon against spirits.
>>806729give him high INT, let him never speak a word and call him gordon
>>806751I thought that was a given
>>806751>>806744Wow... I honestly never made that connection. Will do! My party is going to kick my ass for this.
I made a bar-fighter recently, who uses nothing but his fists and whatever else he has handy.Hell, I gave him plenty of bottled wine and ale in his equipment list so he could he could still fight in unfurnished conditions!
>>806779don't forget the glasses
A cat burglar who uses a fine umbrella. We got the end to taze later.
>>805695Yes. It's got radioactive burning rocks in it that cause radiation burns and terrible shit.
>>806832A Skaven plague monk as a character would be awesome. Actually, a Skaven rpg would be awesome. Seems like it would be a mix between (obviously) WHRP and Paranoia with quite a few unique rules added in.
Petrified cloud giant cock
My group comes up with some pretty interesting ones.Portable hole + Tower shield = Bullrush MasterOne used some Sovereign's Glue to attach a kobold with a crossbow to his 10ft pole. Called it his Pain Parascope.One of our Psions ran out of objects to toss at the enemy with Telekinetic Thrust, so he hurled his donkey at them.The druid summoned a bear, then the team's alchemist strapped two kegs of gunpowder to it. The bearbomb would become a running joke, and a sure-fire way to loose your druid-hood.
>>806852Children of the Horned Rat has some fairly decent rules for running a Skaven WFRP campaign.
>>808068was that a wfrp book or a warhammer fantasy tabletop army book?
I once had a guy who filled an entire burlap sack with rock while his party was fighting some low-level assorted nasties. By way of upgrading it, he replaced the broken, mangled rocks with the tops of all sort of different hammers (sledge, ball-peen, war, claw), and put some runes on the bag to keep it from tearing.
In the "people as weapons" category, one of my players was, in a sense, super-strong, and decided to spend his first might in a big city with some whore. Natrually, I had assassins come for him and, yep, he beat them to death with the poor whore. We weren't exactly clerics.
I actually picked up a dead dire rat once to use as a weapon. I had no other weapon in sight to use.My friend quickly followed with nun-chucks made out of two bones and a collar.
>>808051I lol'd. This is on par with the skeleram.
Minotaur.Gnome with horned helmet.And a good time was had by all.
I had a drunken master in my game once that would look for stray cats in every town. At every opportunity he'd use said cats as improvised weapons.
