"What else does one have if not the joy of conceit?"
Changeling: the Lost
The Ring Blade is not a weapon for the cold, calculating warrior; it is not a weapon for a disciplined master of combat or the tactician. No, the Ring Blade was made by and for those who fight with a smile on their lips, cracking jokes and taking reckless moves - risk-takers and gamblers of the highest order with a joyous disregard for their own lives.
The Ring Blade is a large metallic ring, usually flat, that is three feet wide and sharpened on the outside edge. Make no mistake - it takes patience and dedication to learn to use the weapon without cutting oneself to ribbons, having it bounce harmlessly off of foes, or simply looking utterly rediculous. But those who do become combatants of grace and deadly deception.
The Ring Blade is an exotic two-handed weapon that deals 1d8 slashing or bludgeoning damage (user's choice). Large and awkward, it's use confers a -2 penalty to attack rolls even for proficient weilders. However, the Ring Blade may benefit from the Weapon Finesse feat, and may be thrown with a range increment of ten feet. Furthermore, a weilder with the Improved Unarmed Strike feat may add their unarmed damage to melee attacks made with the Ring Blade, and they don't have to drop the Ring Blade when engaging in a grapple (they cannot, however, attack with it).
