Maybe, though the idea of a club scripted and then a great scripted weapon is better.

Make it, and let the sims decide if they'll let it be used.

Well it is now released. After the feedback here and elsewhere I decided to also include a much smaller one handed hammer of similiar design that's small enough to count as a normal club/hammer.

So, we'll see what time brings. Will this barely legal toy drown us all in hammer wielding femjas, or will they just stick with their bows and scimitars?

And yes, I'll make the kitchenware of death as some here suggested. Expect a discussion about that sometime in a few weeks.

Well if the weapons comes for Females with bigger Damageokay, but now I like to ask build a weapon for the Males with even higher Damage.
Like A Sword that give 100 damage against The Females, sorry to say this but it is needed for all the Female Warriors on gor and I dont mean panthers ore Talunas.

See, no one has answered that question yet. Does enhanced melee and weaker females produce less GREAT damage than for men. If so, then not only this weapon but my male specific torvie axe are still more powerful than when a woman swings a big mallet.

However there's also the fact that many popular items are just a hair faster than they might need to be, which results in a sword still being the overall better option unless the great weapon user can keep a good distance and position.

In unenhanced melee sim the item is much as I use it, a role play tool worn to show you perhaps do more than fling arrows and tie people up.

If i was to put a panther with a mallet up against a torvie berserker with a massive axe I'd lay my money on the viking wanna be every time. Remember the idea I'm going for is not to make women 'equal' or have options that are flat out ridiculous or impossible for them. What's being attempted is to expand options along reasonable lines so that there's more than just sword, knife, bow and that's all anyone ever carries.

So question is, could a woman, especially one such as a panther girl or similiar survivalist, get acess to a wooden hammer or other large bludgeon when she also can acess metal knives, arrowheads, and spears?

Second question is. Is it unreasonable to permit the occasional use of such a device? Note I don't say constant use. In this case it's like the frieing pan weapon, a killing tool of convenience, not choice.

Honestly, considering how many outlaw camps are surrounded by tree tunk spikes, they've gotta have quite a few of these puppies laying around.

Why is that such a secret? And I'm not talking just great damage, I'm talking about the specifics of the whole 'weaker females' thing. I never know exactly what 'weaker females' means, and I don't think it's an unreasonable question. The one answer I got, from the maker, was on this forum, but it was a very vague 'the final total is calculated less.' Which made me feel like I was being scolded for asking. So the first bit of conventional wisdom I was given (that it doesn't effect damage at all, but severely restricts recovery from damage) is clearly not true (though it clearly DOES restrict recovery)

I really wanted to know because it was up for debate weather we should enable it on our sim, but there was just no data on it available and serious questions were brushed off like it was a big secret. Since we are a heavily Panther influenced sim, and since we spend plenty of time in bondage anyway, the deliberate seeming lack of specific data was enough to kill the idea of enacting it. I doubt it will be up for debate again soon, so it's one of those 'missed opportunities' issues.

So, gentlemen, if you come to our sim... You have to rely on your ACTUAL manhood, not something checked off on a server. Until I can get some clear data on it, I will never change my 'no' vote. If anyone is listening who actually has the specifics on what weaker females actually does, please post them and maybe, if it isn't as suspicious a thing as it seems now, it will be turned on in more sims.

Bondmaids? I'm totally confuzzled by this statement.... Are you making a sweeping generalization that Bond maids are this unintelligent? O.o :pft:

Yeah it's a confusing statement. I took it as meaning she dissaproves on the ground wooden weapons are disney. ;)

Seeing as it lacks anything beyond a generall feeling of close minded elitism without any discussion to substantiate the claim as to why goreans do not have wooden mallets it's hard to figure out the poster's intentions.

Especially since we all know the NGTCGs and bondmaids far prefer automatic crossbows with chainsaw bayonets over any manner of melee weapon. :)

Not all sims have weaker females.

Many sims have stronger melee.

So in that sense, you have a big Torvie doing less damage than a panther.

We can all agree on that point. A hammer damage is less than great damage.

Ok. So normally a woman wouldnt have great damage as an option. Now transfer that idea over to weaker females.

Why would it be a question about if its realistic? The setting is made so that women are weaker...so it makes sense to up the damage?

The question makes no sense, regardless of the difference.

"Oh hey...weaker females...I'll just pull out my Hammer o'Chron Minotaur's Penis and smite these males!"

Thats the realism. As for sales...I can pretty much promise your sales will go up...I bet if someone made a hair pin that did sword damage every FW and their thrall would have one.

Actually, the hair pin of the sword was made years ago, back when all we had was sword, kick, punch, and punch12.

Which was basically when every weapon, including your bare hands, were scripted for sword damage. Hell, some still are because the creators either don't care, or it sells to the NGTCGs better than 'realistic'.

Incidentally the whole realisism argument falls flat when used to argue against a weapon for meter combat. There is zero to do with realism in such situations. Don't beleive me, go get shot in the face by a dozen crossbow quarrels, see how quick you get up. Then, keep repeating the process with a gladius, a katana, a hatchet, a baseball bat, then a dirk until you get my point, or you're finally dead. If you can come back and say you made it through all of that with only a bit of rope burn...well, then I'll concede the realism angle.

Now, thematic compatibility on the other hand is something to discuss. Which is exactly what I'm doing. How is, a big mallet, different from a spear or club? Better yet, how is it more unwieldy than a bow or, a whip? all those, are permitted to panther girls, and some kinds of free women. Finally, why should a big bulky weapon be restricted to the same specifications as something 1/4 its size?

So, if a whip, a far less user friendly device, is okay why not the hammer? Obviously someone who runs around with a sledge 24/7 is missing the point, but the occasional use or even ownership of such a tool is not nesecarilly unfeasible. . Heavy yes, but not out of the realm of possibility.

As for damage. How are two people with identical meters and weapons doing different amounts of damage?

Final question, does anyone here have an issue with a man using this? Since that's obviously the primary target audience, not the female demographic under discussion here.
