Initially I was confused my this wording of the Hobling racial weapon mastery...

Short Weapon Mastery
Races with this feature have a natural skill with short weapons. Once a character with this feature learns any
weapon skill, that character may then wield all short weapons, without the purchase of the necessary skill. In
addition, characters with this skill may apply all weapon proficiencies and slays that they have to short weapons
they wield.


At first I though, hey cool I can use all "short" weapons! Short swords, short axe, short mace, short elephant shoe, ect...

Then someone told me that it is actually "small weapons" such as dagger and saps. Then I saw that this was the way the database was written and said "all darn there goes christmas".

It seems to me that the Hobling weapon mastery should be "Small weapon Mastery" instead instead of short.

Am I the only person who was confused by this? (not unusual) Or do I, and the DB, have it wrong now?

pretty sure a short weapon is still a short weapon.


otherwise it would be called a small weapon.

Hey Crimson, no one asked you. :P The database appears (to mine own eyes) to have it defined as small weapon even if it "says" short weapon. My Hobling has Polearm and "Short Weapon Mastery". When I use the database to purchase a prof the options are "sap, bludgeon, dagger, two handed axe, polearm".

I didn't know if I should report it as a db bug until I knew what the intent of the racial short weapon mastery skill was.

Well Ben it appears you just found a bug with the database. Cause with your prof, you should only be able to buy it for polearm. The dagger, bludgeaon, and sap you don't buy it for, you can just use it with them.

Dang it Files, I don't care about that bug. I just want to know if I should replace my dagger physrep with a short sword.
But I guess you have a point....
