A quarterstaff is a long, staff-like weapon wielded in two hands. Usually made of hardened wood, a quarterstaff is long enough to defend against and attack multiple opponents at once. Although none of the main characters in the series use one, it was noted that Daniel used his spear as a quarterstaff after Wargals attacked him and the bladed point was chopped off. When Horace fought Alda in The Ruins of Gorlan, the latter used a piece of cane as a quarterstaff.
