||Rank & File INFANTRY
Shadza – the regular line infantry ‘grunts’ of Drakkarim orgars, usually equipped with hand weapons, shields and medium weight armour (scale).
Black Star: An oversized mace with a long handle and several rigid spikes emerging from its flanged head, the Black Star is a speciality weapon used by Drakkarim Infantry troops called Shieldbreakers. Using the same principle as the stiletto, these weapons allow a wielder to ignore cloth and leather based Armour points. Used in conjunction with nalzheng-wielding skirmishers, Shieldbreakers equipped with Black Stars can decimate a defensive line of lightly-armoured warriors with brutal ease.
Dark Axe: A wicked barbed axe favoured by many Drakkarim soldiers for its ability to catch an opponent’s weapons and tear them out of their grasp, this axe has several metal protrusions around the head and along its metal-jacketed haft. Any time an opponent is struck by a Dark Axe in melee combat while wielding a one-handed melee weapon the attacker can perform a free disarm combat Manoeuvre in addition to any one chosen.
Doubled Crossbow: Essentially two crossbows joined with the same stock and handle. Two separate triggers, side by side, are included along with two separate bolt shafts and strings, one over the other.
The design decreases the crossbows range in comparison to that of the standard crossbow, although normal crossbows and the doubled crossbow fire the same type of bolt. Both strings of this odd but useful weapon can be cranked back with a single hook, making this a rapid-firing weapon that can fire two bolts per melee round in the hands of someone who has proficiency with this weapon
