Chaindiscs are a set of
round steel blades, each of them attached to a steel bracer by means of a thin,
light chain, usually 15 feet long. The blades are extremely thin and sharp,
being excellently suited to both cutting and flying. When one of these blades
is thrown, motion causes it to whirl around its axis, while remaining attached
to one end of the chain.
Chaindiscs were developed
by a disgruntled and unimaginative weapon designer, who could not figure how
to craft a boomerang that actually came back to the wielder when thrown. As
a desperate measure, he decided to tie his defective boomerangs to a length
of rope, so the wielder could ensure their return by pulling them. Ambricus
insists chaindiscs are the result of his own adjustments to this defective design.
Chaindiscs are usually
wielded in pairs (and thus count as double weapons); however, a single chaindisc
may be used in one hand as well. A single chaindisc counts as a light weapon;
a complete set counts as a double weapon. A character can draw another weapon
with either hand without sheathing the chaindisc first. However, a character
that wields another weapon while a chaindisc remains attached to his wrist suffers
a 2 penalty on all attack rolls.
A chaindisc has reach,
so it can strike both at adjacent opponents and opponents within ten feet. It
allows the user to make trip attacks, though the wielder cannot drop the chaindisc
to avoid being tripped. A chaindisc gives a +2 circumstance bonus on all disarm
attempts and a +10 bonus on checks to avoid being disarmed.
