Jarno Mikkola Posted August 4, 2017 Share Posted August 4, 2017 (edited) I'd say, if mage can learn how to throw a dagger or use a dagger in melee, mage should be capable to learn how to use crossbow (and take care of the weapon). After all, mages are about intellect and learning, aren't they?Well, I am not entirely against allowing them... but think it in terms such as "balance" etc... if you want to make a Mage allowed to use Crossbows, you might as well throw in all the bows, for everyone and their dogs, and every other weapon ala "if warrior can use, then mages plah plah plah can use"... but not a single "Mages can use X bows 2" component cause that will be way too fine and ridiculous. ... physically undemanding enough to be operated by large numbers of conscript soldiers ...Funny, the word conscription dates to the French revolution(1790)... is only effective in Nations, like places where there's "universal compulsory education", not in small townships, which is usually where the Dungeons and Dragons campaigns take place. Cause there's usually monsters about every 50-100 feet in any direction. Yes, the game is ridiculous, but that's part of the world, and the fun. You can't have x conscripts without them speaking the same x language. Which invalidates your whole thing from Wikipedia. Yep, went there. Edited August 4, 2017 by Jarno Mikkola Quote Link to comment
