Great is a class of weapon using the following rules:
- May stab and slash.
- Greater than 48”in length.
- Must be padded on upper 1/2 of length or at least 3’, whichever is less.
- If used to slash must have at least 18” of Strike-Legal surface.
- If the weapon has at least 18” of Heavy Padding it gains the Shield Crushing and Armor Breaking Special Effects when used in a two-handed manner.
- May be Double-Ended.
- Each end of a Double-Ended great weapon must be padded 1/3 the total length of the weapon, or 3'. whichever is less. This requirement replaces the standard requirement for padding on great weapons.
