A Red weapon, when used to slash or bludgeon, does two points of damage and can be used to destroy a shield in three hits. Great weapons are automatically red weapons. Magical Enchantment and the Berserk ability of Barbarian can also make a weapon red. In all cases where a one-handed weapon is red, the weapon or the user must have a red Ribbon to indicate the effect.
