In the case of "obsidian bastard sword" I'd prefer something like a distinctive damascus steel appearance, you know, obsidian and steel fused together (because magic), rather than an entire sword made of glass.

Got news from Aarik, the Macuauitl is off the tables.

 

The team will not be able to create that weapon for us.

We will have to choose from a set of pre-selected weapons. I do not even know if that set includes bastard swords.

 

However, Aarik said we can have a weapon with an obsidian blade, that'd be okay.

 

As long as we don't know which weapons we will be able to choose from I don't see a point in setting up a poll about weapons to be honest.

Congrats on hitting the goal.

 

Maybe a sword with a obsidian blade? Or a axe with a obsidian blade?

 

Or how about some obsidian glasses? Thin shards of obsidian polished into eye glasses lenses? Lore wise it could be said that their used to observe sunspots and help predict the weather (like the Farmers Almanac).

 

Improves resolve and intellect to a great degree but lowers perception.

Well, even if it's not mechanically a bastard sword, we could still call it as such. :)

Obsidian can look *lots* of different ways, it doesn't have to be the normal black glass we're all used to.

I could suggest a hanger or kastane-looking sword, maybe classified as a sabre (or whatever best approximates a short sabre) if those weapon types won't exist in Deadfire. Just to fit the pirate theme!
