I honestly believe Geralt of Riviea is a rip off of Elric of Melnibone.
Funerals, Weddings, and Graduations are just about the most boring things to ever attend. Yep, even if you know the people.
So, I read this and just went, "Yeah! Why not use maces and spears and things????" and then I thought about my own stories and it might have something to do with how majestic the weapons seem? Like, I can't speak for everyone, but I have a soft spot for rapiers and katanas and whenever I think of a majestic weapon, usually a sword or a bow comes to mind. Even if maces and polearms are actually evenly balanced (I wouldn't know; I've certainly never held a spear, mace, flail, pike, etc), they don't look like they should be, you know?-I'm tired of video game heroes who use swords. Gimme a mace, damnit. Or a polearm. Or hell, some neat martial arts skills.
