If you were challenged to death match and you were only allowed a pre-modern melee weapon, what weapon would you choose?
>>
>>675750550

Probably a mace. I was thinking sword, but I think I could fuck something up worse with a mace.
>>
>>675750550
a Bastard sword
>>
A stick
>>
>>675750550
hmm, depends what you mean by pre-modern, like steel age or even before that, I guess i would use butterfly swords, I've done martial arts all my life, the shorter the weapon the better honestly.
>>
spear

Cock of a nigger, sturdy and reliable

Sai

My opponents weapon.

Crossbow, I'd fuck niggas up from a range

A shield. Lindenwood, reinforced with leather or fabric, with a steel or iron boss. That way, I can block or bash somebody over the head.

A spear. None of us know shit about fighting with any of these weapons so range is going to be your friend. Plus, you might get lucky and stab that bitch, otherwise you basically have a long stick which is also good. (Especially against that stupid nigga that picked a sai)
>>
>>675754657
says you, butterfly swords guy, you get to a certain level in your martial arts (usually after ten years), and you start realizing long weapons are bullshit as you can move in on them, and the other guy is fucked as soon as that happens.

Your "martial arts" has a 99.9% chance of being some pussy hugging art. If you're not actually strong and in good shape and have been in actual fights (not with the weapon obviously), then your years of training don't mean shit because you're still untested and green. Any rando with a spear would probably fuck you up more times than not. If you're not willing to admit that the you're failing at the art portion of your training.

Hand-and-half sword. You didn't say we could have a shield or armour and it gives you good leverage, reach, and options in close quarters. I was tempted to say mace because they are savage for inflicting damage, but it wouldn't give me a reach/speed advantage.

If shields are an option then a flanged mace. Light, quick, and they destroy soft targets. They break bones and mangle muscles, and can even be used to shatter other weapons. They give fuck all for reach or defense on their own though.

would've said long sword, but i think i'll go with a halberd
>>
>>675757168
What about a lucerne hammer? Blunt bit for massive damage, spike for poking, and back spike for giving the old reach around hamstring.

I prefer the chopping action of an axe, just my preference

>>675758073
Seems like a pretty weak preference, you only get a good swing if you go straight down from overhead, leaving you open. Any other swing would be too awkward unless you were using a hatchet in which case good luck defending yourself trying to get within range.

A prostitute paid to seduce, drug and kill my opponent, the night prior to the dual.

Failing that, just a shield as my weapon. Preferably a kite shield.

I do have an extensive martial arts background, and I'm really good at blocks and at...whatever the thing is where you don't really block, but you have your arm out and use it to let blows roll over and past you, or you sorta just make somebody's hand or arm slip across it to set them up for a punch to the face. That's why I picked a shield. I feel like I could pretty easily translate my defense into using one, and if I threw my weight into it and pivoted, I'm sure I could smash somebody's temple in with the edge of it.

That said, I agree that a spear would easily be the best option for somebody inexperienced, though. There's a reason why medieval footsoldiers were so often armed with polearms and spears, while trained knights got swords. Swordplay isn't something you can just insta-master, and the range of a spear would be an advantage.

And if I were up against cavalry, I'd definitely go with a billhook.
