Hooray for double swords

Because now that they and their larger cousins have returned, I have no urge to insist that quickblades be reflavored as rapiers.

Re: Hooray for double swords

Well then I'm sure you'll be overjoyed about this:

Commit: #441bb9b wrote:Tweak short blades
Three changes:

(1) All shortblades are now piercing, not just daggers/qbl. This simplifies matters considerably, removes a point of frequent confusion (for even surprisingly experienced players!), and is probably a buff for weak weapon types, for those lunatics who fight hydras with short swords.

(2) Accordingly, the cutlass weapon type has been renamed, to 'rapier'. The captain's cutlass is now, once again, its own weapon type. (It is now the only slicing short blade.)

(3) Short blades' vorpal ego is now called "piercing", not "stabbing". Stabbing is a word that has a meaning in crawl, and it is not what that ego did! (This was another point of confusion for unspoiled players.)

Double swords should cut off 2 of a hydra's heads per hit and triple swords should cut 3.

I think they are silly.
my posts are to be read in a mildly playful tone, with a deep, sexy voice.
