Consider making a Dragon Slaying sword. I would say with this build, its extra damage but also helps with Initiative (go earlier, and more cards to get a Joker).

Note: He was a plain old 1e fighter. This is a Savage World conversion to capture the spirit of the build.


Zork and his Brother Mork adventured with the infamous Eddie von Haven, Animal, Sloth, and Hawk (or someother Hawk-like PC). They specialized in killing dragons (because in 1e, two handed swords did horrible damage to dragons). At one point, only Zork survived a near TPK, establishing him as the stronger twin (the battle was with some weird flying skulls with a death shriek – a Craig special). Eventually, Mork was permanently killed. Zork had him stuffed and hauls his brother around in a Bag of Holding.
