Polearm Emporium

There is a small shop in Caipi-Taal, in a backalley where the Black Street (known for its blacksmith workshops) meets the Moonward Street (which runs from the northern gate to the Cathedral of Authority). It is known as the Polearm Emporium and carries the widest selection of a certain type of weapons. Can you guess what type of weapons this shop offers?

Long spear,
short spear
and javelins.

Pole mace is basically a morningstar on a very long pole.
Similarly, pole hammer is a long war hammer used against
riders, and looks a bit like lucern hammer.
 
Only pay attention to the right half of the picture.

Fangtian ji, also known as a half moon spear.

This is a war scythe...


...and this is a great scythe.

From the top: three taiahas, hoeroa, tewhatewha and a club.

Naginata, yari and arbir.

Bohemian ear-spoon.

Siege hook.

Bambu runcing is a simple hunting spear made of bamboo.

A selection of European polearms.

Quite obviously inspired by this Order of the Stick strip. But this emporium actually has weapons to sell. And while all the weapons will probably have pretty much the same stats, the players can buy a polearm with a cool sounding name here.

  1. Consider a system where you play as a random peasant with an ultra-custom polearm, where each knobbly bit has some kind of, like, special effect? Idk how it would work but you'd get these baroque nightmares made of flails and spears and spikes and axes on the ends of poles and it would be *FUN*
