Title: Quarterstaff Question
Post by: Nick the Nevermet on August 23, 2004, 01:27:15 PM
Quick question for the people who know the history of weapons better than I:

Who used quarterstaffs?  Just travelers?  Was it a dueling weapon?  I'm assuming it wasn't seen in the military, but hey, I'm asking because I dunno.

Thanks :)

I think most TROS questions may have moved over to the new Riddle of Steel forums on http://www.trosforums.com/

but doing a search I found an article which may suit you.
