Virtue stone equipped

  • This item is enhanced by the use of appropriate Charged Ammunition.
  • When a virtue stone is equipped in the Ammo slot, the additional effect has a chance to go off.


Occasionally attacks twice

  • Unlike most 'occasionally attacks x times' weapons, this effect stacks with Double Attack and Triple Attack.
  • Chance for second attack may activate on both swings, for a total of 4 hits per round. This can extinguish 2 Virtue Stones, however.
  • If the "occasionally attacks twice" effect activates on both initial swings, Double Attack and/or Triple Attack may activate on all four of these hits, resulting in anywhere from 2-8 hits in an attack round.
  • Eight swings per attack round is the cap of the number of hits that can be processed in any given attack round.

Historical Background

A bagh nakh (alt. Bag'hnak, Nahar-nuk, Waghnakh, Wagnuk, Wahar-nuk Hindi for "tiger claw") is an Indian hand-to-hand weapon designed to fit over the knuckles or concealed under and against the palm. It traditionally consists of four or five curved blades affixed to a crossbar or glove, and is designed to slash through skin and muscle, mimicking wounds inflicted by a wild animal. The bagh nakh is similar to Brass Knuckles or neko-te.

The weapon was developed in India, primarily for self-defense, though there are conflicting reports of the time period in which they appeared. The first well-known usage of the weapon was by the first Maratha Emperor Shivaji. He used a variation of the bagh nakh (the Bich'hwa bag'hnak) to kill Afzal Khan, a Bijapur Sardar.
