Humans are easy to kill. You have an example of their anatomy right under your clothes. Animals are alien to us in many ways.
I have never hunted animals before.
To condense fact from the vapor of nuance.

Clearly, few of the people in this thread know shit all about fighting, or hunting (hence that 'I'll go hunt with a frikken knife' shit. Protip: it don't work like that)

Humans are too slow, blind, loud and weak to kill shit with a knife, or even a spear. We're designed to run small-medium herbivorous animals down over long distances, and/or throw spears and rocks and stuff at them until they die. And make traps, lots and lots of traps, and then use our 'mad knife skills' to cut the throats of the trapped animals while they can't run away.

As for the weapons, I'd take the Crossbow. Any dumbass can use it, it will kill the shit out of anything, and it won't warp your spine like the longbow. Fantasy is like hollywood; you can just go *twang, twang* with your pinky finger and shoot holes through burly, armoured Ork scum. Real longbowmen on the otherhand, had messed up spines and ridiculously overdeveloped bow arms for firing the things. I think, and don't quote me on this, that one arm usually ended up shorter than the other as well.

Poison blowgun thing is second choice; it wins in heaps of situations, where stealth or concealment are key, but for maximum killing power I'd take the crossbow.

For hand to hand, the Halberd wins easily. With that shit, I'd stab some faggot barbarian in the face long before he could stab me with his sword, and cut the balls off some wannabe assassin five times over before he could get close enough to 'backstab' me with his dagger.

exactly :) hunting wise a longbow would probably be better then a crossbow though because of the crossbows range and its also louser so the animal might get scared and run before your bolt actually hits it still more effective then a knife though lol
