Scythe

A real world scythe used in 1600's

A scythe is a farm implement that can be used as a two-handed, martial melee weapon.[1]

DescriptionEdit

A scythe is a long, curved, sharp-pointed, one-sided blade mounted at 90° on a shaped haft and is normally used for harvesting wheat or corn. The blade is tilted and the haft is shaped to make it easy to swing just above the ground and cut the crop stalks. One or two handles may jut out of the haft to make it more comfortable to swing in a mowing fashion. The military version of this tool will be a bit straighter, reinforced, and balanced for war. An average scythe costs 18gp and weighs 10lbs (4.5kg).[2]

WeaponologyEdit

The scythe can be used for piercing or slashing attacks in the same manner as some pole arms, like halberds, but is not a reach weapon. It takes two hands to wield a scythe and some training to use effectively, so it is classified as a martial weapon. Because the blade is long and slightly curved, it can be used to trip opponents.[3]

Other editionsEdit

The scythe is not mentioned in the 1st or 2nd edition player handbooks.
