Headed weapons: Maces, Clubs and (I think) the quarterstaff. Fists are NOT considered Headed weapons, at least not as far as discipline abilities are concerned.

Bladed Weapons: Swords, daggers.

Pikes: Bladed Polearms, I'm not sure if a polearm can be counted as a bladed weapon...I think it's in a class of it's own (See the Pikeman discipline)

Someone correct me if I am wrong.
Mike: For the majority of you, choosing to use a packet instead of a weapon is a hindrance because your aims suck.

Travis: Crap he is on to me.

So most Axes would be headed but a halbred or the like would be a polearm.

sorry to be a Pain...but what is a club? just blunt?

If a staff is defined as headed, is it because the ends are the only part that can be struck with? Does that mean that a chrcter w/ Weapon Focus-Headed gets the +1 with Staffs?

Staffs and clubs are not classified because there are no skills specific to those weapon types
