New Ancestry: Rabbitfolk, Part 4—Equipment
In my last post, I featured a set of feat that allowed rabbitfolk access to rabbitfolk weapons. It would be very mean of me to tease new rabbitfolk weapons and never actually give those out, so this time around I have just that. Let's take a look at some rabbitfolk gear!
Rabbitfolk make use of a number of different items, both mundane and magical. The following are some of the equipment common among rabbitfolk communities.
Rabbitfolk typically use lighter weapons that allow them to take advantage of their agility. This includes the likes of smaller axes, hammers, and swords as well as smaller ranged weapons like shortbows. Rabbitfolk have also developed a few weapons of their own design, which are presented here.
Rabbitfolk weapons can have the following traits.
Dashing: The weapon benefits from a lead-up run before thrown. If you moved at least 10 feet on the action before your attack, add a circumstance bonus to damage for that attack equal to the number of damage dice for the weapon. In addition, if you moved at least 10 feet on the action before your attack, you treat the weapon’s range increment as 10 feet farther.
Rabbitfolk: Rabbitfolk craft and use these weapons.

Rabbitfolk use their speed to give their warren knives an extra bit of power and distances when they throw them. It deals 1d4 piercing damage. A warren knige is a martial melee weapon in the knife weapon group.

A warren spade is a specialized digging tool that rabbitfolk use to dig out their warrens and the tunnel networks that connect these homes. They resemble a large spade, though they are still smaller than a standard shovel. The smaller size allows a rabbitfolk to dig out a cramped tunnel without the need for a large range of movement. It deals 1d6 slashing damage. A warren spade is a martial one-handed melee weapon in the axe weapon group.
Rabbitfolk use some of the following magic items.
Bouncing Rune 3+ Evocation, Magical Usage etched onto a thrown weapon
When you make a thrown Strike with this weapon, it immediately rebounds toward another enemy within 10 feet of the original target. Make an additional Strike against this second target at a –2 penalty. Both attacks count toward your multiple attack penalty, but the penalty doesn’t increase until after you’ve made both attacks. If the weapon also has a returning rune or your thrown attacks have some other way of returning to your hand, the weapon makes its rebound Strike first before returning to you.
