All that talk last month about hooking enemies, got me to thinking about pole and chain weapons.

Historical Question:  How were morning stars and flails used in ancient times?

What Stat would a one handed morning star have?

What Stat would a pole-arm flail have?

How would they work in combat?

Would they overcome a shield?  How?

Would a flail type weapon need to take 1 turn to recover?
