Quarterstaff

A quarterstaff (plural quarterstaves) is a simple, two-handed melee weapon that may be used as a double weapon.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Six to eight feet (1.8 to 2.4 meters) long for a human-sized creature,[2] a quarterstaff is usually made of wood and sanded cylindrical with a diameter of 2 to 4 inches (5 to 10cm), with blunt ends.[3] They may be plain wood to intricately carved works of art. The basic quarterstaff can be enhanced with metal-shod ends or textured striking surfaces which increase weight and/or cost. A typical quarterstaff weighs 4lbs (1.8kg) and costs nothing because it can be easily made with little skill. Metal enhancements will likely cost extra.[1]

WeaponologyEdit

The quarterstaff is one of the simplest weapons available to any adventurer. Favored among martial artists, monks, and some rangers, the quarterstaff may be used as a double weapon. Wizards often use enchanted quarterstaves to channel arcane energy and as a mundane walking-stick.[4]
