Anyone else think whips would be a cool mid-short range weapon given the setting? Ya know...totally go Indiana Jones on some pirates?

Just think of the role-playing possibilities in the Salty Mast...

However... i am for weapons that give options like an ability

Like disarm or ripost

Rapier and duelist style weapons could be a viable option.

I would be all for additional melee weapons in general considering that guns are getting an upgrade and a new gun entirely that fires AoE explosives (real thing) all confirmed in the Q&A yesterday. So considering that I would like to see melee weapons get a similar pass and some addtions.

Whips open up the possibility of disarm attacks. I believe disarming was implemented in Tyranny, wasn't it?

Former slave Orlan Cipher here. Always thought the gods were a bunch of ****, Thaos simply confirmed it. But if there's a one of them that makes a good point now and again, it's Skaen.

Dammit.

There should be backer option to see how many workhours each feature cost, so we could set priorities.

Would Whips be cool - awesome, as well as battle chains (meteoar flail?) and nine tails.

Would i weep about whip? - not at all.

I'd rather see nets. Whips are pretty limited weapons against armored opponents.

​Wouldn't that be a trap?

Probably rather go for a meteor hammer, as it could possibly still be useful against an armored opponent for more than just disarming and tripping, but animating it would be a pain.

I'd be interested in having whips in the game if you could damage yourself or adjacent allies with the equivalent of critical failures and there were special animations and character barks tied to that. Otherwise, I'd be more interested in greater variation in flail models since they're a more credible threat against armor, but by that same token, maybe they can make a soulbound whip that's effectively a flail mechanics-wise. They've apparently done something similar with Xoti by treating her sickle as a hatchet.
