Weapon Type

Weapon type is the category of a weapon, and in the basic Fire Emblem d20 system, there are eight types: Sword, Axe, Lance, Bow, Anima, Light, Dark, and Staff.

The types are broken into two main groups: physical and magical. The physical weapons, Sword/Axe/Lance/Bow, rely on Strength for damage and Defense for damage reduction. The magical weapons, Anima/Light/Dark/Staff, rely on Magic for damage and effects, and Resistance for damage reduction or effect resistance.

Each of the two groups contain their own triangle that tells which weapon is effective over another. See the weapon triangle for physical weapons, and the trinity of magic for magical weapons.
