Aihulak: This weapon is an unusual flail. A short length of rope separates a four-bladed, hafted grappling hook from the handle.
Cahulaks: This double weapon features two four bladed, hafted heads separated by a length of rope. The secondary end is light enough to be used as an off-hand weapon. When one end of this weapon is held by the haft, the rope is long enough to grant the other end reach. The entire weapon can be thrown.
Carrikal: This axe has two forward-facing blades carved from the front of a large jawbone, commonly that of a mekillot.
Chatkcha: This throwing wedge, often shaped from crystal or obsidian, is a thri-kreen invention. It returns to a proficient wielder’s hand after the ranged attack is resolved.
Dejada: A long, scooped basket fitted to a glove-like bracer, the dejada is used to hurl projectiles. Ammunition can be a fist-sized stone, but the weapon is also used to extend the range of explosive alchemical mixtures.
Dragon Paw: Short blades attach to either end of this staff. In the center of this double weapon is a guard with a protruding blade perpendicular to the staff. The light, middle blade (which serves as the off-hand end) can be used for quick jabs, ideal for a warrior with a roguish bent.
Gauntlet Axe: This heavy bracer holds two light crescent blades, turning the forearm into an axe while keeping the hand free. The weapon can also serve as a light shield. A gauntlet axe can be enchanted as either an arms slot item or as a magic weapon. When enchanted as a magic weapon, it does not occupy a character’s arms slot.
Gouge: This spadelike weapon has a long haft with a handle on the end. The head is a wide, double-edged blade with a stabbing point at the top. Some gouges are fitted with a strap or a harness, making the weapon easier to carry.
Gythka: Each end of this thri-kreen staffhas a small, crescent-shaped blade with a centered stabbing tine. The secondary end of this double weapon is light enough to be used as an off-hand weapon. A gythka can be thrown like a javelin.
Lotulis: This short-staffed double weapon sports outward-pointing, barbed crescent blades on each end.
Net: A net is a web of rope or cord fitted with heavy weights.
Puchik: The grip of this weapon is perpendicular to its wide blade. A puchik is treated as a katar.
Singing Stick: The ends of this 234-foot-long, narrow rod are carved to be slightly wider than the middle. It whistles as it spins in the hands ofa proficient user.
Talid: Made from leather, chitin, and bone, this spiked ““gladiator’s gauntlet”” augments unarmed attacks. A talid can be enchanted as either a hands slot item or as a magic weapon. When enchanted as a magic weapon, it does not occupy a character’s hands slot.
Tortoise Blade: This bony or chitinous plate is affixed with a short blade that points forward from the wielder’’s hand. An enchanted tortoise blade can be used as a magic shield or a magic weapon, but not both. When enchanted as a magic weapon, it does not occupy a character’’s arms slot. A tortoise blade and a spiked shield are considered to be the same weapon.
Trikal: This polearm projects three blades symmetrically lengthwise from its haft. A trikal is equivalent to a halberd.
Whip: Although a whip is impractical as a weapon in most circumstances, some opponents are prone to underestimating the wielder of a whip, which can lead them to attack rashly or make other mistakes.
Widow’’s Knife: Although this weapon originated as a harvesting tool, it has become a favorite in noble courts. The blade is a flat semicircle. The grip can be modified to hold poison. A widow’s knife and a dagger are similar weapons.
Wrist Razors: This weapon consists of three sharp blades that protrude from a sturdy bracer, freeing the wielder’’s hand. A shield cannot be worn on the same arm as wrist razors. Wrist razors do not need to be drawn, nor do they need to be sheathed for the wielder to use the hand the razors are on. An enchanted wrist razor occupies the arms slot.
