Goblin Totem Weapon:
Mostly wielded by small folk like Goblins, Gnomes and Halflings.
Goblin Totems are very personal weapons and are shaped by the one who wields them rather than churned out by a mage guild. Consequently over time these weapons can be modified by their wielders in many ways.
Base: +1 damage against any creature that size is greater than the wielder.
-Small fetishes can be added to the weapon to provide +1 Parley bonus involving specific tribal races/cultures (Goblinoids/lizard men/bullywogs/gnolls/etc) as it represents a familiarity with these groups gleaned after many battles/interactions with them .
-If a bow, worg fangs can be added to the ends to allow for melee
-if a dagger, giant snake fang can replace blade to add +1 Piercing for more effective delivery of poison
-if axe, blade replaced with jaw of a great beast, it’s fangs providing Messy tag
-if hammer, red orc runes can be added to the mallet that simply make it swing faster providing +Forceful tag
-if sword, scabbard whose interior is lined with the gall and kidney stones from a troll that sharp the blade every time it is sheathed or drawn, +1 piercing
These are just some examples of how a Goblin Totem Weapon can be improved. Every great battle or adventure can provide the opportunity for the weapon to be improved.
