Killer kitchenware

Postby Rhubardin » Sun Feb 28, 2010 6:01 pm

Alright so I'm about to finish up yet another oddball set of kit for gorean & medieval themed role play. Nothing quite as eccentric as a sledgehammer women might or might not be able to lift, but it was inspired by the thread on that.

I am of course speaking of the request for weaponized versions of rolling pins, and iron skillets. Obviously these are toys only a woman would normaly use, though I can see some bakers also wanting thse instead of a sword or club.

So now the question is, how to handle the damage (Recurring theme for me it seems). It's obvious a big heavy skillet can, and will ruin a person's day as can a rolling pin, but does that mean it should do club damage? Should it perhaps be scripted for slave level damage more beffiting its use by noncombatants? Or, does the fact most combat monkies rely on bows, and a book quote involving the lethal applications of utensils render it a moot issue?

If I just made that to confusing I've got a poll set up asking for input as well. Should I make it club damage only, low slave damage only, or should I perhaps script a option to switch between the two into the weapon? How do you feel about breadmakers being able to crack a skull of an uppity outlaw? Also of course, does this actually matter when taking in the metagame of pew pew combat?

Its not about being "lethal as xyz" its about trying to preserve the environement. Women arent allowed 40% swords because its totally ungorean, its because we can not fully rp the environemental factors of gor.

So, which should i go for then Blue? Obviously it's going to have the option to do damage, if only because the pew pew has no real bearing on thematic elements after a certain point. It also would strike me as unfair to sell a frieing pan that just goes PANG rather than inflicting some kind of visible ouchy on the target.

You and I know that a good role player should be able to go with taking damage when hit even if his meter doesn't scream at him, but some would prefer to see there be a visible element that would make its use less, funny. So, it's gotta do something in the end. Also that something has to be meter legal, and more or less thematically appropriate to the setting.

Obviously I am of the mind that club damage is the way to go but I'm not arrogant enough to just assume that's acceptable. Not to mention feedback helps make a better product in the future.

No more than dagger damage for sure. I have a cast iron pan, and it is heavy! If I got brained with it I doubt I'd survive. But since it would have no leverage, it wouldn't be anywhere near a sword or axe. Dagger damage but much slower.

I know that Andera Shermer sells such kitchen weapons.

About the time a tarn drops a load on you, back on topic however, go with the hybrid on it Rhu, set it for club, and slave. From a marketing standpoint i would see this selling the best, as the slave or free can set the damage as the sim requires. From a realistic stand point id say club, I also have cast iron skillet, and getting bonked in the nogging wiht it wuold probably knock me otu cold if not cracked my skull.

Club damage is certainly the most accurate and fairest. Cast iron frypans are heavy! If someone got clonked by it, then it's not possible that they would do no more than just say ouch. A rolling pin too; it depends on what kind of pin you have, but those old-fashioned solid wood ones would be at least as effective as a policeman's truncheon, which after all was designed to be an effetive weapon.
