Pandybat Competition -(family appropriate
please)

For the information of those who are not familiar with this
(in)famous class of devices, an explanation: a Pandybat is a weapon
(?) of Tournament Combat, which at first glance is
obviously not a sword, mace, or axe, and at
closer inspection does not have any relevance to fighting
whatsoever. Pandybats are difficult to use, and so unlikely and
clumsy in their handling and application that their use is
preferred by only a minute coterie of devotees, who are often
difficult to distinguish from fools and incompetents.

There are a number of species of Pandybats (perhaps mutations is
a bettr term), among which are:

The Classical Pandybat: “Well, umm, y’see, I started out to make
a sword, but the rattan wasn’t long enough, so I put a mace head on
the pommel for fighting at close quarters, then I remembered that I
fight best with axe, so …”

The Left-Handed Pandybat: “But if I use it in my right hand the
flail hits me on the knee, and the corkscrew catches on my shield
strap.”

And the Equestrian Pandybat, a device intended for use from
horseback, and which, due to its singular lack of applicability to
foot combat, has only been mastered by a hard core of demented
souls, who are shunned by even the general run of Pandybatters.

So let your imagination (and your sense of humor) run rampant,
and join in the carnage (mostly self-inflicted) which will
ensue.
