I was thinking of a new weapon to put in my campaign im DMing for one of 2 main bad guys. This is one of my first times DMing so im trying to get input of other people to see what they think. Im trying to create the weapon that Ivy uses from the game Soul Calibur 2. if noone has played that, the evil guy in Brotherhood of the Wolf uses it at the end of the movie. Basically its a sword that has a trigger that can turn it into a whip-like sword.....yeah, i can barely even describe it. thats how much help i need :-P

Do you want it to be balanced with other weapons, or is it just something cool the bad guy is going to use?

If the latter, I'd just make it a longsword with reach that can be used to trip and such.

If you want to make it balaced just make it magical in some way and add an exotic wepon prof. You should be good.

We had a guy use that once. Basically just did that the guy above said. +2 to disarm too.

The whip-sword is exactly that. It's a whip that can deal lethal damage, if you look at the whip end of it. Or it's a short-sword with reach, if you look at the sword end of it.

If you're trying to get it exactly from Soul Calibur, then it would definately be a SHORT sword and not a Longsword. If you're just trying to make something like it, then by all means go it up.

Just take the rules and stats for whichever sword you're going with and cram them together with the whip.

:] Happy DM'ing.

It seems a lot more closely related to a spiked chain to me. Give it rules like a spiked chain, but let it deal damage like a sword.

Well, essentially, the spiked chain already -is- a cross between a sword and a whip.

So there you go.

*laughs!* That just goes to show you can find ANYTHING on the internet. IF you know where to look. Bravo!

Remember that the "bad guy" will have to have exotic weapon(bone-chain sword) feat to use the weapon. Probably a bunch of other feats to enhance its use as well.

Also be aware any item that you give an NPC will eventually end up in the hands of the players. If you don't want the players using the weapon...
