The Case of the Missing Sword... Cane


Investigator Playtest

Silver Crusade

Really excited about Investigator and seeing them in action, I'm actually building one right now for a one-shot we'll be running! Though, unless I'm missing something glaringly obvious I can't seem to find sword canes anywhere in PF2 thus far. I perused the AoN and core book, checked the Character guide... Did I fail my perception check or is this something that's to be added in the actual APG that snuck in with no reference?

There aren't any sword canes yet. They might come when the APG actually launches though.


AFAIK its not included. Oddly I was expecting that, and a few other things to be included in the playtest. Also oddly thought they'd have a few more elixirs or alch items in the playtest too.

I haven't f ound the canesword anyway. I hope its more finesse/agily than it was in the first edition stuff. I love the agile lithe sword canes more than the beefy sword cans in media

I would like the stats on the sword cane so we can see how OP hiding a SWORD in your walking stick is, surprising everyone when you pull it out and accuse the magistrate of being corrupt...


I'd just run it as a Short Sword and Scabbard that effectively has Glamoured on it.

A sword cane is basically a rapier without the fancy handle. I'd go:

2 gp
1d6 P
1 bulk
1 hands
Sword group
Deadly d6 - not quite as stabby as a rapier
finesse

You can draw the sword and attack an adjacent target at -4 as a single action.

DC 20 to detect the sword.

More complicated::: - You can be holding the wood cane/scabbard after you draw the sword and use it for an off hand weapon to attack or parry. Make it a club with Parry?
