This is what 2d6+Str damage looks like

The company Cold Steel has demos for every one of their swords on their website.  Perhaps most impressive is their greatsword demo.  Watch in fascinated horror as burly guys chop big pieces of pig.

It’s a bit over the top, but it does give you a sense of what real medieval combat would have looked like.

If you come across someone swinging one of these, you want to be sure that you have either a high dex bonus, or are wearing some serious armor.

I’ve seen the full promo DVD. It’s really awesome. I just hope these guys BBQ-up all the pigs they chop into little bits. Seems wasteful, otherwise. :)
