Scythes are a class of melee weapons similar to broadswords, yet with a few added capabilities. They can be "aimed," they cover a greater amount of swing area, and they can pull in enemies.
A Scythe will swing, like a Broadsword, when the player clicks the mouse button. However, the Scythe's swing will start 60˚ before the cursor's point and end 60˚ after.
Scythes will, instead of knocking enemies back, pull enemies in towards the user when they strike. The stronger the knockback rating of the Scythe, the less the enemy is pulled in.
