an original fic pondering

What's a believable (i.e. you wouldn't roll your eyes if you came across it in a story) reason that a pre-firearms society would not use bladed weapons?
  • Current Mood: thoughtful thoughtful
what if.....20 years ago, something happened that killed all teh smithies, thus no one knows HOW to make a blade. Or maybe they're just stupid enough that they haven't figured out how to smelt metal and have no idea what those minerals do, so they stick with wood.

I can't see you making stone weapons off limits. No race is that stupid and if they can make a club, they will figure out how to strap a rock on the end to make it work better.

I can see you finding a way to make metal blades off limits,but not stone blades...unless they were in soem swamp or something where there are no rocks
