A scythe is a tool used for reaping crops or mowing the grass, but is in role-play mostly known and used as a weapon that for instance reapers use. Their scythes usually carry magical abilities, whereas a normal person would have to enchant it first or ask someone to do so for him or her.
Scythes are often frowned upon as a weapon choice by game masters or players who are trying to run or participate in a more realistic roleplay. This is because scythes are not particularly effective weapons, especially against armored opponents. These DMs will often give scythes very bad stats, or else punish players by forcing them to cope with tedious special restrictions.
