Bloodborne Weapons

Saw_cleaver

Saw Cleaver: One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used in the hunting business.

This saw, effective at drawing the blood of beasts, transforms into a long cleaver that makes use of centrifugal force.

The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth, has become a symbol of the hunt, and only grows in effectiveness the more grotesquely transformed the beast.

saw_spear

Saw Spear: One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used by those who dedicate themselves to the hunt.

This saw, effective at drawing the blood of beasts, transforms into a medium-range spear.

The saw, with its set of blood-letting teeth, has become a symbol of the hunt, and only grows in effectiveness the more grotesquely transformed the beast. 

 

 

 

Hunters Axe:Hunters-Axe One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used on the hunt.

Retains the qualities of an axe, but offers a wider palette of attacks by transforming. Boasts a heavy blunt attack, leading to high rally potential.

No matter their pasts, beasts are no more than beasts. Some choose this axe to play the part of executioner. 

threaded-cane

Threaded Cane: One of the trick weapons of the workshop, commonly used by hunters on their duties.

Sufficiently deadly as a rigid bladed cane, but also serves as a whip when its blade is split into many.

Concealing the weapon inside the cane and flogging the beasts with the whip is partly an act of ceremony, an attempt to 

demonstrate to oneself that the bloodlust of the hunt will never encroach upon their soul.

kirkhammer

KirkHammer: A trick weapon typically used by Healing Church hunters. On the one side, an easily handled silver sword.

On the other, a giant obtuse stone weapon, characterized by a blunt strike and extreme force of impact.

The Church takes a heavy-handed, merciless stance toward the plague of beasts, an irony not lost upon the wielders of this most symbolic weapon.

 

chikage

Chikage: Foreign-made weapon wielded by the royal guards who protect Annalise, Queen of the Vilebloods at Cainhurst Castle.

When the intricate, rippled engraving that spans the Chikage’s blade is imbrued with blood, the sword sings in scarlet hues.

However, the rite eats away at the wielder’s very essence.

 

beast_claw

Beast Claw: Beastly weapon wielded by Irreverent Izzy.

Crafted by chiseling the long bones of an undead darkbeast and fastening them to the weapon. The bones are still alive, and when unleashed, grant its wielder a spurt of beastly power.

As flesh is flayed and blood is sprayed, the beast within awakens, and in time, the wielder of this weapon surges with both strength and feverish reverie.

 

 

blade_of_mercy

Blade Of Mercy: A special trick weapon passed down among hunters of hunters. One of the oldest weapons of the workshop.

Splits into two when activated. The weapon’s warped blades are forged with siderite, a rare mineral of the heavens. Most effective in swift attacks, such as after a quick-stepping.

 

 

burial_blade

Burial Blade: Trick weapon wielded by Gehrman, the first hunter.

A masterpiece that defined the entire array of weapons crafted at the workshop. Its blade is forged with siderite, said to have fallen from the heavens.

Gehrman surely saw the hunt as a dirge of farewell, wishing only that his prey might rest in peace, never again to awaken to another harrowing nightmare.

 

legarius_wheel

Logarius Wheel: Weapon wielded by martyr Logarius’ band of executioners.

Used to slaughter the Vilebloods in Cainhurst. Bathed in pools of their blood, and forever steeped in their ire.

Transform to release the power of the wheel and manifest their lingering rage in a show of utter brilliance.

 

Ludwig_Holy_Blade 

Ludwigs Holy Blade: A trick weapon typically used by Healing Church hunters.

It is said that the silver sword was employed by Ludwig, the first hunter of the church. When transformed, it combines with its sheath to form a greatsword.

It exhibits several departures from the workshop’s design, suggesting that the Church anticipated much larger inhuman beasts.

 

Reiterpallasch

Reiterpallasch: Weapon wielded by the Knights of Cainhurst.

Combines an elegant knight’s sword with the peculiar firearm wielded by the Cainhurst order.

The old nobles, long-time imbibers of blood, are no strangers to the sanguine plague, and the disposal of beasts was a discrete task left to their servants, or knights, as they were called for the sake of appearances.

 

rifle_spear

Rifle Spear: A trick weapon crafted by the workshop heretics, the Powder Kegs.

A prototype weapon serving as a simple firearm and spear, possibly created in imitation of a lost Cainhurst weapon.

Lacks any notable functions, saving that it is the only trick weapon with an attached gun.

 

stake_driver

Stake Driver: A trick weapon fashioned by the workshop heretics, the Powder Kegs. Favored by the retired hunter Djura.

The stake driver, with its queerly complex design, violently drives thick stakes into the flesh of foes.

The stake driver allows for high-damage critical attacks, but is difficult to use and leaves its wielder wide open, but none of this should bother a mere Powder Keg.

 

Tonitrus

Tonitrus: A unique trick weapon contrived by Archibald, the infamous eccentric of the Healing Church workshop.

Striking this peculiar iron morning star flail like a match generates the same blue sparks that blanket a darkbeast.

Unfortunately, for reasons untold, the hunters of Archibald’s time did not fully take to the device.
