Half-Elf Fighter/MU/Cleric weapon restrictions

Postby sparc_spread » Thu Jun 29, 2017 3:38 am

In SW Complete, the Half-Elf is the only race that has a multi-class option that includes Cleric (the Fighter/MU/Cleric option). SW Complete is clear that armor restrictions apply when multiclassing (e.g. thief and leather armor, MU and no armor) but not really on weapon restrictions. Do you think that the Cleric weapon restrictions would apply to a Fighter/MU/Cleric as well? Thanks!

I would say yes, the restrictions apply and only allow non-edged weapons. Of course that does deprive them of some potentially cool magic swords, but then again they do gain the advantages of three classes, so I guess it balances out. Interestingly the rule in OD&D can be read to imply that clerics can not use edged _magic_ weapons, leaving them open to use non-magical swords.
