Str Fighters and bows/guns
Posted by Grumble on 02/08
Basically the problem is this: If you are a str fighter and are
wieldeding a str weapon, you can't hold a bow/gun or anything
I have 80 perc 82 dex and 80 str right now and I can't wear
a skyblade and a short bow. (nothing else just a skyblade and
my hands are full). This is a bit unfair. A SHORT bow!

guess you'll have to find a lighter str weapon, something you can wield
single-handed. Maybe you need more str, who knows.

Um, Grumble... try to hold a huge, heavy sword and a bow at the
same time. you'll find it much more difficult than holding a dagger

last i checked, you could wield a huge weapon AND hold a boat
at the same time. :P

a) i can wield the weapons i'm talking about in one hand
b) i was since told that its con that determines this and i need to get my
con up about 20 more points to be able to do this.
c) just look at con fighters with their huge staves (quaterstaves and such
and yet they can wield it and the bows. Don't give me realism in one
respect and then say, but these people are exceptions.

whoever told you con is way wrong.
it's not just the weight of the items that count, it's also the
sizes of the items. The skyblade is about the equivalent of being
3 to 4 feet long, and a shortbow about the same. These are also
factors in how much one can hold in their (sometimes seeminly)
As far as the quarterstaves, most are small and lightweight in
terms of game-numbers.

Nod, but some things are strange in weight, say for instance
a vial, used to be no matter what you carried as a little dex weapon
you couldnt use a big gun and a vial ( a little vial) yet
you could hold lots of other items
