This weapon is a long wooden
shaft with a Scythe blade on each end. The Scythes protrude from the shaft in
opposite directions, so that while one of the blades points in one direction
the other points in the opposite one. This makes it easier for the wielder to
attack with both blades in a single, swift circular movement.
The origin of two-bladed
scythes is unknown, though Kaiser Konrad of the Kingdom of Appa is credited
with devising at least one version of this weapon. Kaiser Konrad was a lover
of deadly and exotic weapons, his favourite pastime being the research of innovative
devices giving an edge in combat, regardless of how eccentric they appeared.
Despite his investigation of all kinds of different weapons, the scythe was
always Kaiser Konrads favourite weapon; the two-bladed version was one
of his first and most successful experiments with its structure.
A two-bladed scythe must
be wielded as a double weapon, thus the wielder always incurs all penalties
associated with fighting with two weapons, exactly as if he was fighting with
a one-handed weapon on each hand. A two-bladed scythe cannot be used to make
trip attacks as a normal Scythe can, nor can it be used in one weapon.
A character that rolls
a natural 1 when attacking with a two-bladed scythe always hits himself with
one of the blades, suffering the appropriate damage.
