The Blade Staff ("Scál'tár")

Image description.

The Blade Staff (Styrásh "Scál'tár") is polearm weapon with a curved double sided metal blade fastened atop a wooden staff, having a length of generally two peds. It might be used by all kinds of fighters, but is usually wielded by the Nybelmarian Kaýr elf warriors and operated in a similar way as many other polearms. It is an effective weapon against opponents using swords/axes or other weapons with less reach than a polearm, this includes infantry and horsemen. Picture drawn by Jonael Tomeskrift.
