I decided it'd benefit people to have a list of weapons they can go through for inspiration. In the case of Exotic weapons a description of their use may be necessary. I want to start out with Ôˆž-16th century weapons ("Medieval" Weapons), then 17th-19th (Steampunk and Early Guns) , 20th - 21st (Modern Warfare), and then space-age technology commonly found in sci-fi. (Meaning it has to have more than 1 pop reference using it. Aka no light sabers, they're only found in Star Wars, but yes to Ray Guns and Mechs.) I will need people throwing me a few weapons so this list can be comprehensive and complete. Thanks It's going to take a long while for this list to be completed.
I'm thinking of adding a quick description for each weapon, but it would take a longer time to compile.
Also I'm considering adding in musical instruments for when someone wants to make a bard character and also considering adding in mythical weapons section for things like Excalibur and Longinus and Gugnir.
In the end this list will help you stock up your weapon shops with some good stuff instead of "Fancy Sword" and "Dual Daggers" and could help artists make interesting weapons for their characters.
I may even add a comprehensive material list, though that'd be short since it's mostly catagorized by ages (Stone, Bronze, Steel) but may be expanded on by using Mythical or Unorthodox materials.
Also while the Katara is Indian, it is still Arabic. However I've decided to be less broad with their origins.
I suggest checking out the exotic weaponry for yourself. Some if it is really fascinating.
