    Reach + Shields?

    I'm looking into making a Dwarven Defender for a game I'm going to be in and I was wondering if anyone knows of any weapons with reach that can be used one-handed or if there any feats that will allow a two-handed weapon to become one handed.

    I want my dwarven defender to be able to threaten a 10' area when he's in his defensive stance so having a weapon with reach while still being able to use a heavy shield would be great.

    Don't know if it's still around, but Monkey Grip let you use a two-handed weapon as a one-handed weapon, but at a -3 penalty.

    Is there an updated version of monkey grip? Because if it's the one in Complete warriors it just lets you use weapons that are a size larger than you but if it's a two-handed weapon it still has to be two-handed.

    I just bought 'Feats'... a book of about 1000 feats. I'll let you know if I see anything in there.

    Animated shields are the cheesiest of cheese.

    The whip has reach but it has low nonlethal damage.

    One handed with reach.

    J.R.R. Tolkien wrote, "I wish life was not so short. Languages take such a time, and so do all the things one wants to know about."

    Ah, yes, someone mentioned a whip before. Thank you for reminding me.

    But, yes, you're right. The damage is too low to really make a difference for AoO.

    Whip Daggers however deal 1d6 lethal damage.
