short swords: are they even worth it?
in my multiplayer game with some forumites I decided to let go of powergaming and rather than give my fighter/thief longswords I decided to go with short swords. however, I am beginning to question myself a little tbh. We ran into Shar Teel yesterday and I talked to her, and felt pretty honor bound to be the one to fighter her as Bhaalspawn and the one speaking, as well as a man as she asks for. However the fight just turned into a whole lot of misses and I actually lost! I think I hit her twice and that was it. That was my first time ever actually losing the fight, and I was being healed a bit even (so much for 1v1). i feel I should ask if the short sword will prove any more effective when I gain levels and have a higher thaco. seeing as I lost to shar teel I feel like I must've really gimped myself, but then we also did go with realistic stats. maybe I will do better with a strength item? i am ok with the fact I can't fight things like golems because my usual longswords can't either, but I can't imagine having such a hard time hitting a humanoid.
