      No, probably goes to the nuke or whatever bioweapon the CIA or Chinese are developing but it’s definitely got great marketing

        Spears in general are just good. Talented spearsman would have no problem in a 1v1 with someone who wielded say, a katana for this matter, or a long sword or the likes.

      Range and speed decided almost every single war on history, so the answers are projectiles and firearms.

      It’s true that in ww2 the Japanese officers were targeted because the killing power of the katana was feared and respected

        which is funny considering how shitty the mass produced ones were to a genuine one made by an experienced swordsmith

        Why would you assume he was talking about a katana?

      Yes. In the hands of a master it could not only cut through flesh and bone but through time and space itself.

      That’s it. I’m sick of all this "Masterwork Bastard Sword" bullshit that’s going on in the d20 system right now. Katanas deserve much better than that. Much, much better than that.

      I should know what I’m talking about. I myself commissioned a genuine katana in Japan for 2,400,000 Yen (that’s about $20,000) and have been practicing with it for almost 2 years now. I can even cut slabs of solid steel with my katana.

      Japanese smiths spend years working on a single katana and fold it up to a million times to produce the finest blades known to mankind.

      Katanas are thrice as sharp as European swords and thrice as hard for that matter too. Anything a longsword can cut through, a katana can cut through better. I’m pretty sure a katana could easily bisect a knight wearing full plate with a simple vertical slash.

      Ever wonder why medieval Europe never bothered conquering Japan? That’s right, they were too scared to fight the disciplined Samurai and their katanas of destruction. Even in World War II, American soldiers targeted the men with the katanas first because their killing power was feared and respected.

      So what am I saying? Katanas are simply the best sword that the world has ever seen, and thus, require better stats in the d20 system. Here is the stat block I propose for Katanas:

      (One-Handed Exotic Weapon)
      1d12 Damage
      19-20 x4 Crit
      +2 to hit and damage
      Counts as Masterwork

      (Two-Handed Exotic Weapon)
      2d10 Damage
      17-20 x4 Crit
      +5 to hit and damage
      Counts as Masterwork

      Now that seems a lot more representative of the cutting power of Katanas in real life, don’t you think?

      tl;dr = Katanas need to do more damage in d20, see my new stat block.

      I was a late weeb. I acquired the malady in 8th grade, when a teacher said that the american soldiers storming the beaches of Japan in WWII would refuse to run to their trenches, since the japanese could split them in half, helmet and all, with a katana slice. Anime just reinforced this view.

      double edge>single edge
      infantery with stabbing sowrds > infantery with blowing swords
      swords with more hand protection > swords with less hand protection
      lighter swords for infantery > heavier swords for infantery
      single handed middle swords > double handed middle swords

        also, about infantery formations:

        >When there aren’t fire weapons and heavy cavalry:
        Maniple > macedonian phalanx > hoplitic formation > mercenary or varied army

        >When there are heavy cavalry but not fire arms:
        Swiss/Landsknecht mercenaries > Man-at-arms

        >When there are heavy cavalry and fire arms but still not very efficient and not very precise artillery on battlefields:
        Tercio > Swiss/Landsknecht mercenaries > Man-at-arms

        >When there are heavy cavalry and precise artillery but rifles are still of frontal reload and these have smoothbore:
        >Napoleonic army>Frederick the Great prussian army>Swedo-dutch reformed army after tercio>Tercio

        etc…
