Cumbersome staves, crafted from solid metal. Usually, seven-foot tall, three to four inches in diameter, and with a smooth rounded head at either end. These weapons seem rather impractical, until you see a horse skull or a knight's plate armor shatter under the force delivered by an end of a Heavy War Staff! It's use is simplistic with attack types being somewhere between a normal quarterstaff and a bat, making it just slightly less accessible to the average person.
Prerquisites: Base Strength of 20 or greater.
If an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 20 Strength, he takes a -2 on all attacks and damage; if an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 13 Strength he takes a -4 penalty to all attacks and damage; if an otherwise proficient wielder has less than 10 Strength he may not wield this weapon.
