Nenya, the she-elf from Caras Galadon, does not carry many visible weapons. Instead, she hides numerous daggers and knives among her clothing which she pulls out when the need arises. She wears a silken gray Galladrim cloak which prohibits prying eyes from seeing her as a protection, as well as silver elven mail underneath her riding dress.

ya know what ive noticed? Nobody ever uses weapons OUT SIDE THE BOX. You either have a sword or bow or some sort of knife. If youre a dwarf you use an axe. Nobody ever uses a spear of flail of mace. I was reading them over-1 person used a mace (though i cant imagine him using it in a rp), and 1 person used both a spear and a scimitar.

no...i want someone to use a spear or lance or be a skirmisher. Something like that. How about someone make an rp character with a flail? War Hammer? MAce? Lance?

Kevin has thought about [sorry, using third person] using a Spear, but I like swords soooo much also. And i'd tried to be relistic, would, in real life or Middle-earth, carry around a sword, spear, 2long knifes, long bow and arrow and throwing knife?

thats not what im saying though. 1st in midevil times a warrior would only carry 1 weapon. No bow if you have a sword, no sword if you have a bow. Next-i mean in place of a sword have one of those. por ejemplo:

-1 spear
-small knife
-2 small throwing knives.

and another character with the sword bow and knife. In my next rp i will use a spear. Keep that in mind. The rp time is supposedly the very very beginning of Middle Ages so spears were becoming more and more common.

dont think of it like that. In real life (in mideval times) a woman wouldnt dare pick up a weapon lest she be tried for treason. In real life there would be no orcs and wizards. In real life either an entire army rode or walked, had bows or swords and spears. In real life only ancient soldiers at the very beginning of those ages weilded axes.

Hey Anamatar Joan of Arc dared to pick up a sword and wield it. Also if we're talking Third Age Eowyn was pretty good with one. By the way what is it with spears? I much prefer swords and bows.:D LOL

Oh yes, Calimmacil, I feel dumb, sorry.

But I must[or could or might] be one of the first to use a Lance?

Somewhere deep in the ruins of Mordor
Greetings from Mordor honorable knights, i am a dark knight-necromancer from Mordor....
Anyway my weapons are:
1-A dark shield with the symbol of the red eye, which protects me against any weapon. Any weapon that hit the shield will grow weaker and weaker untill it break with just one blow.
2-My armor that has the same qualites of my shield and that it also turns red and it becomes as hard as mithrill
3-My long sword with the blade red as fire which steal the souls of every single warrior who dare to fight me, and that can be covered in flames making the death slow and painfull.
4-A large dagger that is cursed with a deadly poison...(only elves has the antidote)

Who would dare to fight me?
