But if anything they still could have used farm-tools with some sort of martial implication. Such as a pitchfork or something. Needless to say they wouldn't have much *umph* but still something to fight w/ if you were being invaded. Such as a peasant mob or something like that.

They did use farm tools for attacks. Tonfa, Kama, nunchaku were all orginally farm tools. But there were Goshi (farmer warriors). these dudes were good.

Actually, most of things could be used as weapons. A farmer shall not be as good as a samurai with a katana, but he can still use one. Some of them used to hide this sort of weapons, after all. Although they mostly fought only for self-defense, in the game a farmer may have the same capacity to learn an artial art as any other warrior, although for a farmer or something, it'd be way more difficult, since he probably won't have all that "theory" thing nor all the time that most of the students had.

I think "pitchfork gangs" would own cause I mean farmers do a lot of physical work and would be strong even though they don't always fight they should do pretty good against intruders!

In a logical way, yes. But they are not trained, they just have the own resistance they need to do their work. Just because you carry weights here and there all the time, it doesn't mean that they are physically resistant and all, they just may take care of their own. But with just that they'll not have the training and the stamina and all to fight around 10 invaders or something. all they could do is kill on or two, maybe 3 with real might. They should not have a real style with weapons or anything, it'd be only a desperate guy trying to kill. It's not that they are no good, but they have not a real training, and the farm work is not like going to the gym or anything like that, but they should be stronger and more resistant than a normal person.

Angry mob of farmers with bamboo spears. yeah, around 100 of them and they destroy the world. Or maybe not, but they will do some big damage.

-Nods.- But nothing better than Iai draw and cutting through bamboo equilvant to human bone. Of course this requires actual skill.

Well all that said, you just need to apply a real world principle. I walk out into my back yard right now, pick up a 10 Kg Blocksplitter (heavy metal wedge on handle for breaking up logs for the fire), walk out onto the street and hit some guy in the head with it. I don't need training. I just need to how to use a blocksplitter accurately (which general use teaches you). So anything can be used as a weapon. I can stab you with a pencil. Hit you with a chair. Break a chair and stab you with part of a leg. Break a plate and slice at you with a broken peice... the list is potentially endless no? And if its a realistic game...
