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 deadly form of combat is centered around the use of this surprisingly powerful earth-severing shovel, invented in 5573 by Deekar Snirigax, first Kobold emperor of the Munerian continent.

This weapon can be used as a ranged or melee weapon, or as a travelling device.

Ranged: It deals 1d4 (adjusted by size) bludgeoning damage at a range increment of 10 feet. Any target hit by this attack must make a DC 13 Reflex save or be blinded for 1 round.

Melee: It deals 1d8 slashing or bludgeoning damage.

Tunnel: You can take 1 minute to make an attack roll with the Tachi against rock, dirt, or mud. You dig through a number of 5' cubes of the substance equal to one-tenth your attack roll, rounded down.
