I'm trying to make it work for catfolk since they got a new trait in Blood of the Beasts that makes the tekko-kagi a martial monk weapon for them, as well as treating them like a set of claw blades, but I'm not finding anyway to make the damage dice go up. :/

Brawlers or Warpriests that follow Bastet could do it, but they're proficient with the tekko-kagi anyways so it kinda defeats the purpose of the trait, lol.

What's the name of it? I can't find it on the PFSRD.


It's not on there yet. It's called Adherent of Ancient Osirion (Religion). It would be called something different when it does get on the pfsrd though.

Yeah... common sense and apparently Humans of Golarion both say temple sword is a monk group weapon, but some sources don't list it as such. I guess it's safer to go 9-ring if dealing with a very legalistic GM. Cooler weapon anyhow.

Back on the OP topic... Martial Versatility also means you can apply Slashing Grace to some things that wouldn't normally apply. I don't know if it's really mechanically 'worth it', but how cool would it be to have a Swashbuckler wielding a one-handed greatsword with Martial Versatility/Slashing Grace and two levels of Titan Mauler?

Presenting the tekko-kagi!

Nah. Needs to be more claws-on-fingers than claws-on-wrist.

Or I'm being pointlessly specific, and I should just imagine that's the case :D

Claw Blades!

See, now those fit the bill more. But they want me to be a cat, which sorta runs counter to recreating this guy!.


I am highly disappointed that nobody's mention the heavy pick yet.

Racial Heritage(Catfolk) and Catfolk Exemplar.


I'm playing a swashbuckler in Mummy's Mask. The GM has allowed me to use a khopesh in place of a rapier, for flavor reasons. It works just as well, but the crits don't happen as often, which is an ok trade in my book.


I really do want to make a Terbutje/Macuahuitl swashbuckler one of these days, but I can't for the life of me imagine how you would use either dextrously.

I convinced my friend to go with a heavy pick for his Daring Champion. I certainly enjoyed the mental imagery.

In a somewhat related topic, my 'gentlegoblin adventurer' Daring Champion uses a Morningstar because, and I quote, "it is the most gentlemanly of weapons."

Strangely the Temple Sword has never been listed as part of the Monk Fighter Weapon Group in any of the RPG line of books. It's not on the PFS list either. Paizo seems to have reconsidered the description from Humans of Golarion.

While I'm not a fan of the phrase "common sense," I do think that it would be simpler and more consistent for the Monk weapon list to be the same as the Monk Fighter Weapon Group. As it now stands, we have several items that are on one list but not the other. I really don't understand why those particular weapons are excluded from one list.

Spoiler:
The knuckle axe, bich'hwa, and temple sword are Monk Special Weapons but are not in the Monk Fighter Weapon Group.

The tri-point double-edged sword, unarmed strike, and urumi are in the Monk Fighter Weapon Group but are not Monk Special Weapons. (But of course unarmed strike doesn't need to be a Monk Special Weapon to flurry.)

The bo staff, brass knuckles, butterfly sword, cestus, dan bong, deer horn knife, double chained kama, double chicken saber, emei piercer, fighting fan, hanbo, jutte, kama, kusarigama, kyoketsu shoge, lungchuan tamo, monk's spade, nine-ring broadsword, nine-section whip, nunchaku, quarterstaff, rope dart, sai, sansetsukon, seven-branched sword, shang gou, shuriken, siangham, tiger fork, tonfa, and wushu dart are all both Monk Special Weapons and in the Monk Fighter Weapon Group.

That...actually works! Dammit, one throwaway comment and now I actually want to try and figure a build for this guy.

With Paths of the Righteous you also get to add glaives to list. If you want the viking vib you can call it an Atgeir or Lochaber axe.

... I think I want to make this now. lol

(Sorry if this is a double post. Weird posting issue.)

Warpriest. Fighter with Focused Weapon. Strength-based TWF Ranger. Three options right there. :)

How have I never seen focused weapon before? Might be better if you could take it twice, as the awkward sod uses two different weapons...

I always figured him as an Antipaladin of Besmara, actually. Fighter is interesting though - Eldritch Guardian would net him his familiar, too...
