Hills of Silver Ruins (4/11)

Much blood and gore in this chapter, along with weapons and military equipment.

Barding (or to bard) is body armor for war horses. A boatman's staff (梢子棍) is a longer version of what is commonly known as nunchaku. A meteor hammer (流星錘) is an ancient Chinese weapon that consists of weighted objects connected by a rope or chain. Here it is used it like a tethered bolas.

The halberd (斧) consists of an axe blade topped with a spike mounted on a long shaft. The short-handled version resembles a tomahawk.

A podao (朴刀) is a single-edged infantry weapon with the blade of a broadsword but a longer handle.
