A stake is a strong, hard, stick which has been sharpened on one or both ends. They are between ten and eighteen inches long and an inch or more in diameter. Stakes are most commonly made of wood, but they can and are made of bone, horn, stone, and even metal. As a matter of fact, the lowly iron spike which almost every adventurer has rattling around in the bottom of their packs, can be used perfectly well as stakes. They are surprisingly good weapons, inflict deadly wounds, and all for the low, low price of 'free' if you're willing to scrounge and whittle. The Stake belongs to the "Close" weapon group.
