Ranged Weapons

Musket: A musket is a muzzle-loaded, smooth bore long gun, which is intended to be fired from the shoulder. This was still considered to be in its earlier development during the early 17th Century. It took around 60 seconds to reload, and packed quite a punch, but inaccurately depending on the range.

Pistol: A handgun is a firearm designed to be held and operated by one hand, with the other hand optionally supporting the shooting hand. However, the Pistols of the early 17th Century, were all very close-range oriented, but fired more quickly then a bow. It took about 30 seconds to reload an early pistol, and normally the early 17th Century pistol held about 6 bullets.

Crossbow: A crossbow is a weapon consisting of a bow mounted on a stock that shoots projectiles, often called bolts. The Crossbows of the early 17th Century became more effective. It was a shorter 'reel' and, and there were modifications, such as the Crossbow-Pistol which was single-handed oriented.

Longbow/Shortbow: A bow is a weapon that projects arrows powered by the elasticity of the bow. Essentially, it is a form of spring. As the bow is drawn, energy is stored in the limbs of the bow and transformed into rapid motion when the string is released, with the string transferring this force to the arrow.

Close-Quartered Weapons

Swords: A cutting or thrusting weapon that has a long metal blade and a hilt with a hand guard. Royalty tended to use Rapiers, and amongst the Military, you had various kinds of swords being used.

Daggers: A short knife with a pointed blade used for piercing or stabbing. It is popularly used for political killings amongst the politics themselves.

Axes: An edge tool with a heavy bladed head mounted across a handle. Used more popularly by the stronger warriors of Europe.

Blunt Weapons: Blunt instrument is a legal description of a weapon used to hit someone, which does not have a sharp or penetrating point or edge.

Duo-Bladed: A weapon type capable of being interpreted in two usually contradictory ways; "double-edged praise". Very rarely, but surely, have specific warriors preferred a close-ranged weapon with two sides to use against opponents.

Hidden Blade: The signature weapon of the Assassin's in the Assassin Order. It is a short, but sharp blade cloaked on the wrist normally, but, other places are possible, in order to ensure a quick, silent and simple kill.
