Description
Notes: Weapon is Lawful; Those of Chaotic Alignment Suffer Susceptibilities When Touching / Wielding It.
Effect
  • Magically Accurate: +2 with Axiomatic Longsword
  • Magically Lethal: Hand-To-Hand Killing Attack 3d6-1 (4d6 w/STR) (vs. PD), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2) (60 Active Points); Independent (-2), OAF (-1)
  • Axiomatic: Killing Attack - Hand-To-Hand 1d6 (vs. PD), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2) (22 Active Points); Independent (-2), OAF (-1), Only vs Chaotic Targets (-1), Adds to Base Damage of Sword (-1/2) Notes: This damage is intended to be essentially "free" vs. targets of Chaotic Alignment, modeling the ubiquitous concept of opposing Alignments from the source material. To best model the source material, you should not include the Active Points of this ability when determining the total Active Points of the composite effect. For instance, when using this Character's "Combat Reflexes" Triggered ability that is usable with up to 60 Active Points (which covers the base weapon effect), if a Chaotic target is struck this extra damage should be applied even though it technically exceeds the Active Point limit of the Trigger.
