I'm trying to figure out if Unconventional Weaponry makes Katanas work with Warpriest features but its looking like it doesn't.
The Warpriest Doctrine says:
If your deity’s weapon is a simple weapon or an unarmed attack, you gain the Deadly Simplicity cleric feat.
The Deadly Simplicity feat does this:
Prerequisites deity with a simple or unarmed attack favored weapon, trained with your deity's favored weapon
When you are wielding your deity’s favored weapon, increase the damage die size of that weapon by one step.
The Human ancestry feat Unconventional Weaponry does the following:
Choose an uncommon simple or martial weapon with a trait corresponding to an ancestry (such as dwarf, goblin, or orc) or that is common in another culture. You gain access to that weapon, and for the purpose of determining your proficiency, that weapon is a simple weapon.
Since the weapon is only considered a simple weapon when determining your proficiency. So:
- You would not get Deadly Simplicity for free through Warpriest since the Katana is not inherently a simple weapon.
- You can't even take Deadly Simplicity as a feat at all.
Does this sound correct?
