Weapons and Armor

Weapons and armor are separated in six different categories: worn, simple, masterwork, epic, legendary, and mythical. The first three categories may be found with any vendor around the world with only a few offering epic items. Weapons and armor hat are legendary and mythical are extremely rare and are generally found during quests.

Weapons and armor matter in VOID Tabletop Roleplaying Game. These items will define your character and how they operate in combat [outside of sorcery]. There are light, medium, and heavy groupings that have an immediate impact on characters movement and ability in combat. For weapons, there are additional sub-categories of unarmed, one-handed, two-handed, ranged, thrown, and duel-wielding. One exciting aspect of VOID is that some of these weapons cross between categories giving you additional options during combat. For instance, you may fight with a doloire as a medium one-handed weapon for most of combat, but suddenly have the option to throw it as a heavy one-handed weapon when the enemy attempts to flee.

Currently, there are over 60 unique weapon options to choose from when building your character. Here are a few examples of light weapons, medium weapons, and heavy weapons.

Luk: (Light, Ranged) The luk is a shortbow that requires two hands to wield. This weapon is made for ranged attacks against enemies.

Doloire: (Medium, One-Handed) The doloire is best recognized as a wagoner’s hand-axe. The weapon has a wide crescent blade on one side that can be deadly when crossed.
