Axes

Axes are inexpensive, extremely common weapons that double as tools. The axe family also includes picks, which are sometimes used in battle because of their impressive ability to penetrate even the thickest armour.

Handaxe: This light axe can be thrown.

Battleaxe: This single-bladed weapon packs a lot of punch for a low cost. It has a wooden haft, and is an extremely common weapon.

Pick, Light or Heavy: These resemble the mining tool, but are designed for war. A mining pick functions as a light pick, although is an Improvised weapon. Light picks have wooden hafts, and heavy picks have metal ones. A mining pick can be converted into a light pick with a Simple (DC 6) Engineering (Blacksmithing) check.

Halberd: A halberd is a heavy polearm with an axelike head and a spear point. The piercing damage is done with the spear head, which is the end used when making a Brace attack. Halberds can be used to trip enemies.

Waraxe: A waraxe is an expensive, single-bladed axe designed exclusively for war. It is favoured by dwarves.

Greataxe: This is a mammoth double-bladed axe. A man carrying a greataxe is not a man to be trifled with.
