History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Polearms are among the earliest found weapons, often sticks longer than the typical club, but still effective at dealing blunt traumas. While TL-0 polearms are found objects, by TL-1 most sophonts have learned how to attach various stabbing, cutting, or pummeling heads to the weapons enhancing their usefulness. There is a great variety of types of heads attached to polearms, often each with a different kind of name. Many polearms are simply repurposed farming implements. [3]
