    Anyone know of one? Its kinda hard to tell based solely on appearance, as a Great Sword (for instance) looks as long as a Guisarme.

    Talking 'bout reach weapons...

    You're not supposed to be able to hit creatures in adjacent squares, right? I can hit everything within a 10' radius, though. Everybody else "suffer" from this inconvenience? :p No wonder that combat reflexes and greater cleave are so popular in this game.

    Yeah, I've got that "problem" too...all my melee guys are using Reach weapons of some kind. Although now that I think about it, do the monsters have the same advantage? I don't think I've paid close enough attention to notice.

    [​IMG] Some like chains, whips and I think one other allow attacks in adjacent squares.

    I also seem to remember a penalty when hitting adjacent squares but not sure if that's implemented in the game, or even if it's in the rulebooks let alone ToEE.

    My guess is if characters can use them then monsters use them in the same capacity, so hitting within 10' means monsters can too.

    Now I'm thinking of reinstalling this game to create a "Ghost Rider" character with a crafted chain. :)

    Just add flame burst to the Radiant Chain (+1 Holy chain).
