is there something akin to a Naginata in Tekumél.In T:EPT theres nothing there- nearest thing would be polearm / heavy spear i guess- or doesnt the concept of a sword type blade, pole-mounted exist. If it does, whats the Tsolyáni word for it?

many thanks

I can't say for sure if the Tsolyáni uses any type of weapon directly like the Naginata but I'm fairly sure there are weapons like that present on Tékumel at large. There are after all a relatively large number of different polearms used including spears and halberds (spelling?) used among the nations and races. Therefor if there arn't any stats for them, adding Naginata to the armoury on your own will hardly break the setting. :)

I agree with Gurkhal. Every legion uses a different weapon, and nearly all the heavy legions and most of the mediums use a polearm, so there is room for a naginata-like weapon, but there isn't one in particular. Most polearms are described as spears, pikes, or halberds, sometimes long or short, occasionally barbed. The Legion of Durritlamish of the Rotted Face (6th medium infantry) uses a "poleaxe" which might be similar, it is longer and slimmer than the "two-handed axe" used by some other units. Most soldiers of the Five Empires use more elaborate polearms, with hooks, barbs, or spines as well as primary blades. A naginata would seem like a rather plain weapon.

Functionally, they're just a glaive. A lighter bladed one at that. So have to agree, no reason a legion wouldn't use one, and quite easy to crib based on existing weapons if you need stats.
