Common Weapons

There are many types of weapons that are common throughout Tamriel. These weapons can be simple clubs or daggers, complicated mechanical crossbows, and or skillful rapiers. The Common Weapons table can be used as a starting point, but other types of weapons can enhance the flavor of your campaign or character. When creating new weapons, consider a which common weapon would be the most similar to the one you are creating and use those properties, as described.

Special Weapons

Weapons with special rules are described here:
Bola. A large or smaller creature hit by a bola takes 1 bludgeoning damage and is restrained until it is freed. A bola has no effect on a creature that is formless, or creatures that are huge or larger. A creature can use its action to make a DC 10 Strength check, freeing itself or another creature within its reach on a success. Dealing 5 slashing damage to the bola (AC 10) also frees the creature without harming it, ending the effect and destroying the bola.
Lance. Same as described in the 5e Core Rules on page 148.
Net. Same as described in the 5e Core Rules on page 148.
