Perhaps a scabbard would add an initiative to combat.  If a mobile 
attacks the player, having the weapon ready in a single position could 
add a bonus to a block or attack.  The assumption here is that the 
scabbard keeps the weapon in a place where the player can act on its 
current position quicker and has bonuses to attacks from the scabbard.

Once the weapon is out of the scabbard, its added weight or encumberance 
may add penalties.
