    I would have to say a sword. Not those ugly giant swords with unnecessary features. The nice sleek and more realistic swords with a touch of fantasy. Something out of the Lord of the Rings or George Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire.

    War hammers are pretty cool too, but they pale in comparison.

    I chose a scimitar. I think they are better designed than most English weapons. Not the 'Drizzt' scimitars (though I like them as well), but the traditional Arabic ones. I like the fact that they have a heavy end to them, so you can get a harder swing with one.
    If this was fantasy weapons, it would have to be Drizzts two scimitars.

    Huh? What's a 2 handed basket hilt? Can't say I've ever seen one of those before. Unless it's your own fantasy :)

    For looks I have always love the mace, my brother had one, I feel in love with it. For use I guess double bladed battle axe. For my size and weight, it works best. I would think a sword would unbalance me and I could throw more weight into the swing with an axe. And two blades are better then one. If the war was still at a distance I would like the good ole bow.

    That is a tough decision there but based on all of the novels I've read I'm going with one of the swords. Reason is they can always be sharpend unless they are broken in half and even then they can be reforged. They come in a variety of sizes and shapes. Depending upon the blade they can weight a lot or nothing. So swords all of the way. I myself have a sword.

    As for realistic weapons, I'm torn between the longsword and the bastard sword. Longswords serve their purpose and are easy enough to pick up and use, but the extra length afforded by a bastard sword (especially if you've trained to use one 1-handed) is a definite bonus. And one mustn't forget the katana; such perfection is the sword!

    For fantasy weaponry, I'd have to say a whip-sword. Multi-purpose, extendable, and just imagine getting it wrapped around someone's neck and pulling quickly! Ahhh, bloody shampoo and conditioning. Lovely.

    I'll take a MA5B Aussault Rifle, and a M19 SSM (SPNKr) Rocket Launcher! And Maybe a M6C Magnum... :D
