I'm here to ask about weapon lengths for two handed weapons, and more specifically polearms. As longer weapons traditionally would use their weight (two handed swords/axes) to break through defense or their 10-14' reach (polearms) to be effective in real fights, I was wondering if it was possible to go beyond the accepted default lengths for all larps.
In the past, weapons over a certain length would be unwieldy due to poor construction/material or dangerous with the lack of a lightest touch system of combat. Now we have ultralight kitespar and lightest touch. Even before these, some larps used 8' spears. I'm positing that we look at these and give thought to increasing their length so they can be more effective in fights and we can see a more varied amount of viable weapons on the field.
