I’m sure that this has been asked before, somewhere, but I cant seem to find anything on it specifically. What happens if the Fighter loses their Signature Weapon, even temporarily? The Playbook says: “Your weapon, without you, is useless. Without your weapon, you are useless. You must wield your weapon true.”
Assuming that they’ve been separated from their Signature Weapon in a manner that befits the fiction (and I have no problem separating a Fighter with Fists for a Signature Weapon from them), what are the narrative and mechanical consequences of and event? How have people reinforced that the Fighter must reclaim their Signature Weapon? What does this look like in the narrative?
Or perhaps more plausibly, what happens when a fist fight breaks out in the tavern and the Fighter decides to brawl it out, rather than laying waste to civilians with the Signature Weapon? Are they useless in that circumstance?
