I have noticed that people are bringing multiple weapons. that being said, this new rule is being forced:
You may have an infinate number of weapons, this rule only applies to what you can carry into battle. Everyone has 5 Equipment Points. (Ep)
Ep cost of genrilized weapons.
Lance (W/sheild)/gunlance (w/sheild)- 3 (4)
Hammer/hunting horn- 3
sword (w/sheild)- 1 (2)
Followers' mounts have 5 Ep to hold for them.
