Melee Capable (Quality)

From Epic Path
Jump to: navigation, search

Applied to a ranged weapon, allows the weapon to serve as a melee weapon when wielded by someone with proficiency with the weapon. When so wielded, it inflicts the same damage as it would when thrown. As a melee weapon, the weapon threatens, may grant flanks, and serves for attacks of opportunity. Even better, any enchantment placed on a melee capable weapon counts for both the ranged weapon function and the melee weapon function. (Magical weapon properties may be chosen which are useful for melee or ranged only, but if you do so, they only work when the weapon is being used in the permitted fashion.)
