1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.

A Nodachi is a very sharp two-handed curved sword. Nodachi only have one edge, they are basically two-handed version of Katana. Nodachi are devastating against unarmored opponents but they lose potency against heavily armored opponents. Nodachi take a penalty to Attack and Damage against enemy with Medium or Heavy Armor (Mithral (or similar effect) armor count as they original category to determine if the Nodachi take a penalty or not.). Against Medium Armor Nodachi have -1 to Attack and Damages, against Heavy Armor the penalty rise to -2.
