Small and quick prompt for today. Mostly because it's a question on my head and I figured I'd ask it here and see what I got back from folks. Assume a High Fantasy setting for the question by the way too.
If you're GM was getting ready to start a campaign and asked everyone to give their character some sort of iconic weapon what would you choose? If everyone had to have a different or unique weapon what would you go for? Would you fight to be the person with a sword? Go for something more exotic? What weapon would you go for if you had to have a weapon that would be iconic for your character.
While you're at it, what would you expect out of a campaign where you are asked to have some sort of iconic weapon?
