ARMOR AND WEAPONS
Fighters know how to use the best weapons and armor! In Section E of your character sheet, check shields, light armor, medium armor, heavy armor, simple weapons, and martial weapons. You’ll learn more about armor and weapons later.

WEAPON FOCUS OR COMBAT FEAT
As a 1st level fighter, you can choose to take Weapon Focus or else select one Combat Feat (from the list under 2nd-level fighter Class Features).

For Weapon Focus:
Choose one type of weapon from the list below. Write weapon focus and  the name of your chosen weapon in Section I of your character sheet. When you make an attack roll with that type of weapon, add +1 to your Attack Bonus (Section G).

BATTLE AXE
A battleaxe can be used one-handed or two-handed for devastating critical hits.

LONGSWORD
A longsword is a reliable weapon used by adventurers, soldiers, and city guards.

WARHAMMER
A sturdy warhammer is great for crushing skulls or smashing skeletons.

SHORTBOW
A shortbow is quick and deadly, and small enough that you can use it on horseback.

OTHER WEAPONS
If you don’t want to pick one of the weapons shown here, check out the other weapons in the Equipment section.
