Lacquered Wooden Waster... behaving weirdly?

Code: Select all

<100%hp 100m 100%mv> hold waster right
You wield a lacquered wooden waster in your right hand.
You don't even know which end of a lacquered wooden waster is up!

It is a bastard sword in the double-edged blades category of weapons.
It can be picked up, held, held in both hands.
It cannot be worn with any other armour.
It is medium in size and would fit any body type.
It is made of ironwood and weighs about 4 pounds.
This wooden bastard sword has been assembled from three pie-
ces.  It has a blade and tang, a cross, and a pommel. Copper
nails fix the cross to the blade (the latter fits through an
opening in the former) and then a little tar fixes the round
pommel to the bottom of the tang.

Ilaeya examaines the waster in her hand 'How do you use this?'.

I'm not sure why I suddenly don't know how to use a lacquered wooden waster. I've always been able to use one normally before.

Was this a longsword before, and/or do you have the exotic proficiency feat for bastard swords?

There are some waster type objects out there that are longswords and greatswords, but the "lacquered wooden waster" object is and always has been a bastard sword.

I would chalk this up to Andreas not having the exotic weapon proficiency feat.
