So we already have daggers, longswords, shortswords, battleaxe, greataxe, kama, sickle, throwing weapons, repeating and non-repeating crossbows, shields, bastard swords, khopeshes, maces, morningstars, staves, scepters, hammers, and even our bare hands as weapons we can use in-game.

Why not add in polearms in the bunch?

My idea is that they'd use the same attack animation as a quarterstaff but deal slashing/piercing damage depending on the polearm type.

I mean, Orthons get polearms, Barbazu get polearms, hell, even an NPC guard that just stands around and tells adventurers that they need to do something to get rewards sometimes has a polearm, so why can't we get one?

It just seems like a weapon that should be there, but it isn't.

Well I guess that might explain why we adventurers are not able to buy polearms in weapon shops.
