Index on a Stick

"Am I to come to you with a stick..."

This stick is one of the most versatile tools in the narrative arsenal. You can stick food on it, hit people with it, or even use it to cast magic. In the right hands, it can also symbolize everything from simple rustic wisdom to royal authority. The ordinary stick has also done great service as an Improvised Weapon and a key component of MacGyvering. This is an index for sticks, rods, staves, poles, clubs, canes and walking sticks, and all related tropes. This is not a place for giving specific examples of people using sticks.
