  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

The brandistock apears to be a quarterstaff, except that it has a brass plate with three small holes at the top and a small button on the handgrip. The brandistock has two uses. It can be used just as a quarterstaff can, attacking with the ends of the staff. Anyone who is proficient with the quarterstaff can use a brandistock in this capacity. If a release on the staff is pressed, however, a metal spike similar to a spearpoint wil pop out of a hole in the top. It then deals piercing damage as a spear of the apropriate size category. Two smaller spikes also extend from the top. These serve to give the wielder a +1 bonuus on disarm attempts. Pressing the button to activate the spikes is a free action that does not provoke attacks of oportunity. if a brandistock with extended spikes is set against a charging character by using a ready action, it deals double damage on a hit against the charger.
