New Player: Question about weapon size

Post by Rocmistro »

Hello all!

New player here. I met Andrew at Pax unplugged and my crew picked up the game and found him to be a swell guy. We are going to be trying it out this Thursday.

A question (I'm sure I'll have more) about size and weapons.

In order to use a Weapon with size +2 (so for example let's say a Bardiche), I have to play a physical rune to use it.

Is that for "low-crunch" only or is it always required?

So for example let's say I'm making a Galdr who has Precision Attack (active ability), and its mapped to a mental rune. In order to use that ability when attacking with my Bardiche, would I have to play the mental rune (that is mapped to Precision Attack) but ALSO a physical rune (because it's a giant weapon)? Or would I just play the mental rune?

Thanks for your time in answering.

Ok well you can disregard this. I found the answer on page 100 of the rulebook.

I tend to ignore the physical rune requirement except for weapons specifically designed around strength (e.g. a battering ram). It over complicates things a little. I just pay attention to 1 or 2 handed by size.
