Kazaan wrote:Light/one-handed/two-handed apply only to melee weapons (one-handed firearm and two-handed firearm are considered to be a completely different set of designations despite sharing the "one-handed" and "two-handed" phrase, like Race traits and racial Traits). While a Dagger is a light melee weapon that can be thrown as a ranged weapon, a Chakram is a ranged weapon first which just so happens to be able to be used as a melee weapon with specific guidelines (an exception to normal rules regarding ranged weapons). So a Chakram isn't a light nor a one-handed weapon because those categories only apply to weapons that base melee weapons. Therefore, I'd say no, a Chakram can't be made of obsidian because it is neither a spear tip, nor an arrowhead, nor a light or one-handed weapon. For that matter, since it isn't a one-handed weapon, you can't wield it in two hands to get 1.5x Str and Power Attack and since it isn't a light weapon either, you can't use it as a light off-hand with reduced penalties for TWF. Furthermore, this makes rational sense given the nature of the material and impracticality of making such a weapon out of fragile volcanic glass.Seriously? "you can't use a chakram in the off-hand" because it isn't defined as a light or one-handed weapon in some table? That is a short-sighted interpretation of the rules. I hope that you are not a GM.
That's not what he said. What he did say is that you can't count it as a light weapon when TWFing, meaning you can't get the reduced penalty.
