I only know about Cahulaks because of Polisurgist's answer. Cahulaks from Dark Sun are essentially two grappling hooks connected by a rope. From the Dark Sun Campaign Guide: Cahulaks: This double weapon features two four-bladed, hafted heads separated by a length of rope. The secondary end is light enough to be used as an off-hand weapon. When one end ...

On a purely statistic basis, axes are slightly better A sword threatens a critical 1/20 of the times if it only hits on a 20 and 2/20 otherwise. An axe always threatens 1/20 of the times. Any weapon hits x/20 of the times ...

Here is the math: (Assuming that your critical hits are confirmed) On a roll of a 1 you auto miss, 2-18 = 3.5 average damage, 19-20 = 7 ...

Unless you have specific features that interact with one other other, it really does not matter. The difference in expected damage is absolutely minuscule; critical hits simply don’t happen often enough. Both 20/×3 and 19-20/×2 are close to meaningless.1 So unless you want to take some feat or class that says something special happens only when ...

Most of the time characters get equipment like wired reflexes between adventures, so its accepted that they have passed the adaptation time, but if it comes that this is part of an ongoing game you have this: Cybersurgery and recovery time (p.451 core rulebook) says that you get Essence cost x3 damage boxes, both physical and stun, so you can argue that the ...
