There are lots of weapons to think about in fantasy. You usually want to stay with your more real life medieval weapons. Granted, there are lots you can make up yourself, but with such a huge array of battle gear, I dunno...
However, the only way I can really explain some of these weapons to you is through pictures. Yeah, baby!
You have your halberd and naginata (Can I just say I LOVE me some naginata!):
You have your usual swords, which you know what they look like, right? Dirks, daggers, shields, bows, crossbows and axes.
And of course, don't forget your standard berserker:
Pretty much self explanatory. But you have all sorts of things to choose from. Of course, there are lots of options and you can always mix up some usual weapons and create your own. And since it is a 'W' post, I'll even throw in:
And you can't EVER show a whip without having Devo's "Whip It" playing in your head.
