Complexity: There are 4 levels of complexity: Basic, Simple, Martial, & Exotic. Each class indicates proficiency with weapons of one category (& those below it); characters who are not proficient with a weapon provoke an opportunity attack when attacking with it. While wielding a weapon of lower complexity than the highest you are proficient with, you may act as though trained in a group the weapon belongs to.
Cost: The amount of coinage required to purchase the weapon (this value also helps determine Craft times.
Damage: This is the dice of damage the weapon deals when wielded in its regular manner. Certain weapons deal damage that is not set by the weapon itself; this entry indicates the damage parameters. A standard net deals no HP damage. All values are for a medium wielder.
Crit: This entry indicates unusual critical threat ranges or multipliers. A blank entry here means the weapon threatens a critical hit on only a natural 20, & deals double damage. Some weapons that deal damage based on parameters beyond the weapon also use those parameters to resolve critical hits. A net does not have a rating here, as it does not deal HP damage.
Range: This entry indicates the weapon's Range Increment in feet (for weapons with either a (P) or (T) listing), or Line length. A "-" means that the weapon is neither a projectile, nor can be thrown normally (but can be thrown as an improvised weapon). A "No" or "Hell No" indicates that the weapon may not be used as a thrown weapon without unusual circumstances.
Wt: The weapon's weight, in pounds.
Type: The type of damage the weapon deals ("b" for bludgeoning, "e" for ballistic [shut up & accept it], "p" for piercing, & "s" for slashing), & how much attention is required to wield it properly ("L" for light, "1" for one-handed, "2" for two-handed, or "C2, C3, C4", indicating that many people using 2 hands). A two-handed weapon has a check penalty of -1 on physical skills.
Group: Which of the 12 weapon groups you need to be trained in to wield a weapon properly. If a weapon lists more than one group, you need to be trained in each of those groups to use it. See the individual group descriptions below for special rules for each group. If you do not have training for the weapon's groups, you take a -2 penalty on attacks with it, & may not use its beneficial weapon traits.
Special: Special traits the weapon has that affect its usages. See after the group descriptions for details on these traits.
Black Powder: These weapons utilize the interaction of gunpowder & fire to function, & are somewhat hazardous to the user. If the weapon gets wet, it must make a Fortitude save (DC 5 + rounds of exposure), or require cleaning before it will discharge properly. Not readily available in all areas. Characters without this training take a -4 penalty on Engineering checks relating to such weapons.
Bow: Shoot people. In the face. Until it stops being funny.
Flail: These weapons automatically have the Disarm trait (see below).
Grenade: Such weapons attack against TV instead of AC, though they can deal weapon damage & provide their regular functionality if the attack hits AC. Chemical grenades frequently deal "splash" damage near where they land; for such attacks check for where a miss lands.
Mace: There are no special rules for this weapon group.
Shield: Characters who have Shield Proficiency are able to use them proficiently as defensive equipment, or as weapons (but not both at the same time).
Siege: These weapons are typically intended for use against structures.
Spear: Spears automatically have the Brace trait (see below).
Sword: You like them. Admit it.
Thrown: These weapons are designed to be... thrown. Many have the Fight in Melee trait (see below).

E1 (exotic one-handed): If the wielder has Exotic Proficiency, they may wield this weapon in one hand.
Fe (feinting): When beginning an attack action to Feint, the wielder may make an attack with this weapon as a free action, with a -4 penalty. If this weapon hits, there is a +4 bonus on the Feint attempt.
Fi (finessable): The wielder may apply their Dex to melee attack rolls with these weapons, even though they are not light.
Fm (fight in melee): Though designed as thrown weapons, these may be used normally in melee.
Fo (folded): The weapon must be carefully arranged prior to attacking; attacks made without this preparation take a -2 penalty.
Fx (flexible): The weapon may make attacks into an adjacent square as though any cover that would apply did not exist (but not improved or total cover).
F2 (fumble 2): These weapons threaten a fumble on a natural roll of 2 or lower.
F2? (fumble 2, each): These weapons threaten a fumble on a natural roll of 2 or lower from any Crew.

If the wielder fails to initiate the grapple, they may drop the weapon as an immediate action to negate any reversal.
IR (improved reach): An improved reach weapon allows the wielder to attack spaces 3 squares away. They take a -4 penalty on attacks against closer targets.

Me (melee throw): The weapon may be thrown without provoking an attack of opportunity.
M1 (mounted one-handed): The weapon may be wielded one-handed while mounted.
NH (no hands): The weapon may be wielded without a free hand.
NL (non-lethal): The weapon typically deals non-lethal damage, though the wielder may take a -4 penalty on an attack roll to strike for lethal damage.

Balanced: Apply to any masterwork weapon. Multiply the cost by ten. Must be balanced for a specific wielder (any other wielder treats it as just masterwork). Increase the critical threat range by one. Double the weapon's range increment. Eliminate any check penalty. The wielder gains a +2 bonus on rolls to prevent the weapon from being lost or damaged while in hand.
Cold Iron: Increase the cost of any enchantment added to a cold iron weapon by 2,000gp
Composite: Cost +25gp. +10' range. Weight +1. Can be applied to any Bow.

|Improvised Weapon weight (in pounds)||Damage|
For every additional doubling of weight, increase the damage as you would for an increased size category.
A sharpened item deals damage as though it were twice as heavy. A soft item deals damage as though ½ its weight, & has the NL trait.
Improvised weapons may have the following traits, at the DM's discretion, based on their form & functionality: DB, Di, Fx, Gr, IR, Re, Tr. All improvised weapons have the F2 trait.
