This weapon appears as
a ten foot long chain with a wooden handle in one end and a broad spiked metal
cylinder in the other. It resembles some kind of elongated flail, or a long
chain with a flail-like end.
Longflails have been in
existence since their smaller counterparts were invented, though they have fallen
out of circulation in recent years, as warriors gradually focused into the smaller,
easier to wield versions. A longflail is basically a light flail, except with
a greatly extended chain.
Despite its length, a longflail
can be wielded with one hand without penalty. A longflail has reach, so it can
strike both at adjacent opponents and opponents within ten feet. It allows the
user to make trip attacks; if the character is tripped during his own trip attempt,
he can drop the longflail to avoid being tripped. Finally, a longflail gives
the wielder a +2 circumstance bonus on checks made to disarm an opponent, including
checks to avoid being disarmed.
