Day 26: Favorite Non-Magic Item

from wikipedia
The halberd.

My only problem is that no game system has adequately statted out this great multi-purpose weapon. It's often given 1d8 or 1d10 damage and that's that. I'd say, if used as a spear, it does 1d6 damage but can be set to recieve a charge for double damage. The axe-head can do the normal 1d8 or 1d10 (depending on the system). The hook-point opposite of the axe gains a +2 to hit against opponents in medium or heavy armor and does 1d4 damage, but if swung against a mounted opponent, the rider must making a saving throw or ride check to avoid being dismounted and knocked prone.

  1. I've often found the idea of using one of these in a game to be a great idea, but like you said no system has thought out how to adquately illistrate how this wepon has multi functions and was a game changer in the middleages.
