Bodyguards and militiamen alike will like the halberd as a social and military status, and wise fighters will be able to keep their enemies at bay with its reach. Moreover, every armed garrison wanting to battle knights would be smart to use those weapons, as they are perfect to stop any charge and horse.
How do you think that we, the Swiss people, were able to keep the peace in our lands, free from invaders and wars, through all the scarring conflicts of the Renaissance? While the French were fighting with straight swords, and southerners with curved ones, we had a great advantage: their blades never reached their foes. Our halberds kept the best knights at bay, and a simple battle formation could stop the most persistent riders.
The solution was really that simple. Put a longer shaft behind the blade, and you’ll stay alive longer. With our halberds, we will surely be able to keep the peace in our lands for centuries to come!
