In your addition to Short sword, you mention that dual-wielding short swords at high skill can be equivalent or more powerful than an artifact weapon. This statement can be misleading because it also applies more strongly to weapons of similar power such as silver sabers and long swords, among others, as well as overlooking the fact that most artifact weapons can be wielded in the primary hand. To a new player, it may appear that the short sword is uniquely powerful when twoweaponed, which isn't the case. This should be revised or removed entirely for clarity.
Toned it down a bit. Sometimes become irked with all the "garbage weapon" pronouncements when the proper answer is, "Well, it depends." Great believer that twoweaponing is essentially its own artifact. My orc rogues not infrequently will train up their starting short sword to expert. The rest of the game I twoweapon elven short swords with GoP averaging 37 damage against everything, everytime and with no exceptions. Well, except shades of course. Thanks for the input...
