  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.

War Poules are wooden reach weapons, designed to perform a Bull Rush maneuver from a distance (10 ft./2 squares away). Without a War Poule, a player must perform a Bull Rush while occupying the same square as their target. Standard War Poules are too unwieldy to deal any damage, but they can be made to deal a small amount of damage if modified. These weapons can not deal damage when being used to Bull Rush an enemy even if they have damage dealing capabilities.

Piercing Poules have a small blade attached to the striking bow to deal damage.
Spiked Poules can be used at a 5ft range increment to deal bludgeoning dmage due to their spikes and extra weight.
