Re: [pcgen] 5.17.6 - pathfinder - bastard sword as a favored weapon for clerics
- Hmmm... you know, I never thought of that in all the years I've played D&D. I
see your point, and agree with you, though i'd be interested to find out the
semi-official ruling from, in this case, Paizo. You see, I'm a bit of a rules
lawyer heh. I have no problem with house rules, I just like to clarify the RAW,
then changes are ok with me (usually... 99.5% of the time).
Ok, here is a link to a thread I made asking about this on Paizo's forums.

In my campaign there is a deity who grants bastard sword as favored
weapon to her followers.
The description of this weapon says:

their deity", I believe that - unless otherwise stated - the cleric who
is proficient with the b.s. as favored weapon should be allowed to use
it both as martial and exotic weapon (i.e.: to wield it one-handed and
two-handed), at his choice.
Instead, the character sheet of my cleric reports "N/A" under the
sections "1H-P", "1H-O" and "2W-xxx"; it reports values only under the
"2H" section, making it clear that it considers that only the "martial"
proficiency is considered, not the "exotic".
Thanks in advance.
