Blowguns don't have a speed penalty when used with shields, and haven't since 0.10. I tried adding the info to the page but someone edited it out.
- Blowguns have the speed penalty. The bug only affected melee combat. --CommanderC 21:53, 18 January 2013 (CET)
Species dependent handedness
Something that I found missing, or I can't find the article on the wiki is how species size can affect whether a weapon is one or two handed. For example, Long Swords and bigger long blades are all two handed for spriggans. I've had the same thing happen for quarterstaffs - one handed for some species and two handed for others. Is this info somewhere on the wiki? --Flun 15:04, 17 January 2013 (CET)
