I am in a 3.5 game and I have choosen to play the Swashbuckler base from The Complete Warrior. I have an 18 Dex and I was thinking about grabbing some ranged weapons. My DM suggested a ton of pistol crossbows but I was thinking throwing knives and lots of them. My question is this, since my DM has my 3.5 PHB which does more damage and which overall do you think would be the better choice. With the crossbows obviously after the first shot each you would need to drop them. Which is why I like the knives, you are ready every turn you have them. Just getting some other opnions/info before the next game. Thanks a lot in advance.
