  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.

A long, sword-like blade that bears a wide fuller for balance purposes is mounted on the end of a long shaft that measures anywhere from 1.5 - 2 yards in length. The blade itself is mounted with a tang that is inserted into the shaft and riveted into place. Additionally, the blade itself has a crossbar (usually made of bronze) that faces up and away towards the tip of the blade to assist in disarming or blocking. At the far end of the shaft is a ball-shaped pommel that is used as a counterweight for the main blade. One defining characteristic of the Olexan glaive is that the blade is usually 50% wider than the width of the shaft and it measures from about 1/4 - 1/3 of the weapon's overall length. Granting it the properties of a "sword on a stick".

An Olexan glaive has reach. You can strike opponents 10 feet away with it, but you can’t use it against an adjacent foe.

You can also use it to make disarm attacks.
