Jeff Rients wrote about all weapons doing d6 damage, saying that he didn’t use the rule. Well, I do. What’s it like, at the table?
I haven’t noticed any drawback at all to my game. Only two-handed weapons needed a change as in my game shields can be sacrificed to annul one hit (after the seeing the damage done), making them very valuable.
The Wikipedia article on the Zweihänder has the following fragment:
And this is the Battle of Kappel, showing soldiers wielding two-handed swords against pikemen. Yikes!
