Re: Please help create "Wolverine Claws"
- In our home game, they are things he wears on his hands. They don't
actually take up the glove slot...only because they're already
inferior to a plain ol' magic great sword (we ran mathematical
simulations) and thus the DM didn't want to give me even less
incentive to use them. The main reason we added them was for "flavor."
I imagine that in the comics Wolverine doesn't spill more blood
because too many parents would complain if there was that much
So, would anybody help me code these things? Pretty please?

In your equipment.lst file (new lines are tabs):

Add a weaponprof.lst file:
Add a eqmod.lst file:

SPROP:Ignore 20 hardness
You shouldn't have to code anything else.

- My one thought on that matter is that Wolverine was a Hero (or at
least usually), so killing was kept to a minimum. It was always fun when a
"hero" was created who had one main attack with killing damage, and was way
to strong. If you are not VERY careful, you end up on the wrong side of the
I've always wondered why Wolverine isn't deadlier in the comics. with
his claws, and even well-trained-normal-human strength, he can slice
through titanium like a hot knife through butter. the human body is MUCH
softer than titanium. I'm surprised that most people he fights haven't
been decapitated, disemboweled, or worse.
