  • Don't complain about lack of options. You've got to pick a few when you do multiple choice. Those are the breaks.
  • Feel free to suggest poll ideas if you're feeling creative. I'd strongly suggest reading the past polls first.
  • This whole thing is wildly inaccurate. Rounding errors, ballot stuffers, dynamic IPs, firewalls. If you're using these numbers to do anything important, you're insane.

    The halberd was used by the free cities and cantons of Switzerland to evict invading French [wikipedia.org] and Austrian [wikipedia.org] knights. Clearly the superior aristo-killing tool!

    (Also see Barbara Tuchman's excellent Distant Mirror [powells.com] . Highly recommended.)

    Greetings! I used to be an active SCA member, and I am regularly lurking here :P
    I started in the SCA in around 1978 and was an active member off and on until around 1992. I went to Pennsic XVI and beheld the glory that is a field battle with roughly a thousand people per side :P
    Although that said I preferred Shortsword & Shield, Shortsword & Axe, and Broadsword more than polearms,
    Although I did fight as part of an organized squad of 7 at one point: 1 left handed sword and board, 3 people using Spear and shield, a right hander using sword and board, and a polearmer behind us. Great fun.
    Long Live AnTir! and Long Live the Middle Kingdom!

    Anyone who finds themselves in Philadelphia would do themselves a favor with stopping by our little Art Museum. Their collection of Murder-Death-Kill weaponry would make William Wallace goo his kilt.

    The overview is here [philamuseum.org] and individual pictures are here. [philamuseum.org] A truly dizzying array of polearms is part of the collection.
