    Belive or not I have thought about the answer to this question before. I still can't decide... sword or bow and arrow. I'm stuck between the two. That relates to my other problem, would I want to be a squirrel or mouse? I'm sooo indecisive!

    In order for a longbow to be effetive at long range (and by this, piercing armour and killing) they must have about, I can't remember, I think it's about 200 pounds of pull. People who used these things had deformed spines because of the way you had to pull on a weight of that size. I couldn't even pull back 100 pounds. It was my uncle's high tech deerhunting bow, I didn't even have an arrow, and wasn't trying to aim at something. It made this kind of pathetic twang, and I was trying as hard as I could. Of course, I'm stronger now, but I doubt I'd do much better.
    I imagine Redwally squirrels used shoulder bows, they probably only had 60-80 pounds on 'em (also note that squirrels had to fly through trees with these, and your standard longbow is about as tall as the owner). That's still pretty dangerous to an enemy without any armour, and you have to be able to carry it through the trees.
    And that concludes todays "Vanessa Talks About Pointy Things".
    I say, is that a jellyfish?

    Well, if it's only Redwall style weaponry, I'd go for a dirk or dagger. Battleaxes are too hard to swing and swords.. eh.. cliche! Every warrior has one!

    If we could get a bit more exotic, I'd choose the katar. Katars are a dagger like weapon.. except a.. bit different. I'm not sure if Brian would ever include a katar in his works, but if he does.. eee! Awesome! They're an older weapon, coming from I believe, India and the surrounding areas, so.. maybe!

    Here's an example of what they look like:

    And here's an example of a person (or in this case, a Ragnarok Online assassin) holding a pair:

    See? Nice weapons!

    You mean that guy in the foreground wearing a kinfe? I want one of those. And a million dollars.
    Swords might be cliche, but there's a reason they're so popular. Anyone who can swing a stick can use a sword, if you're willing to learn proper techniques. When I say proper techniques...my sister and I were using sword-sticks, and as I try to use what little parry/thrust skill I have, my sister was just thwacking out madly. If it had been life and death, I coulda dodged around her and *slice*, because " I don't wanna hear about all that 'parry' stuff".
    In Halifax, in the Really Big Mall, there's a stand called "House of Knifes", and it's cool because it has some very good swords, from little short swords to a huge broadsword (called a Wallace sword). They even have Gandalf's thingy, Glamdring, and I've got enough to pay for it Maybe I should buy it, my sword-stick is about the same length...

    Yarr. Not saying it's not skill that's come into play, if anything, you need skill to use any weapon to it's full extent.

    Dirk, dagger, crossbow, longbow, shortbow, handbow, scimatar, pike, javelin, battleaxe, broadsword, shortsword, longsword, rapier, that-sword-that-has-a-bad-word-for-name-and-if-I-spell-it out-this-thing-will-edit-it~!

    All those take skill to use. *nod me*

    That sword that has a bad name for a name is also called a hand and a half sword, and plain old sword, so I wouldn't worry. Gah, Vanessa-correcting-things time again. Blame it on reading a Dungeons and Dragons character guide...can you imagine telling your parents that you now have a *that word* sword?
    I still want Glamdring. It's so shiny...

    I want throwing ninja stars. Though I seriously doubt BJ will ever put ninja-style weapons in there. Now... an Abbey Warrior that weilds a reverse blade sword... that would be cool. Yes, I think TV has been warping my mind. But seriously, I think that would make an interesting twist to the story.

    Kenshin has that kind of effect on people... It'd be cool to see some ninja-type weapons in there though... Oh, and Gooz, you could put a dash or something in the middle to block the sensors, unless the sword actually is a swear word.

    As I recall, you got hit for saying "assassin", a problem I corrected immediately.

    i would like a long bow because long range weapons are cooler. i'd also carry a knife for close range combat.
