Dwarven Weapon familiarity plural used with weapons


Rules Questions


My question seems kind of simple, but it isn't asked throughout the forums that I could see.

Pathfinder Core Rule book/races/dwarf
"Weapon Familiarity: Dwarves are proficient with battleaxes, heavy picks, and warhammers, and treat any weapon with the word “dwarven” in its name as a martial weapon."

Since the three main weapons listed are using the plural does this mean all battleaxes, heavy picks, and warhammers? I.E. their two handed counter parts, as well as light versions?

My reasoning is that in the description of all of the pick weapons reference that they are simply larger or smaller versions of each other.

Can you find a rules citation for a two-handed battleaxe, a light heavy pick, and a two-handed warhammer that's not as the result of using a weapon sized for a larger or smaller creature?

As far as I can tell, a battleaxe is a battleaxe, a heavy pick is a heavy pick, and a warhammer is a warhammer.

The text for heavy picks indicates that they are a "variant of the light pick" with a bigger handle for one- or two-handed use, not that they are a larger version of the light pick.


A light pick isn't a lighter heavy pick. If they meant light picks too they would have simply said "picks".

So I would say no.
