I'd be willing to bet that many DMs would not allow the Quiver of Ehlonna to hold a ten foot pole. None of the examples are that long. Seems like you should be able to have one custom made, though, right?

It says staffs, so I'd allow a 10' pole.  It doesn't say how long a quarterstaff is in the rules.

My reference is a bit lame, I recall these from Robin Hood movies, particularly the scenes where two fight non-lethally for right of passage over a log. The staves appear to be man height or slightly longer; men were typically shorter back in the day, so minimum five foot, but six foot would probably be more typical. No more than eight.

Wiki bears this out, for the most part, six to nine feet, as opposed to a 'long staff', ten to twelve feet.

Is this not an SCA thing? Too late period?

Given the ambiguity, I guess I'd allow it.

The SCA doesn't really do "non lethal" combat.  People carry staffs, they just aren't used in combat as the armor we are assumed to be wearing will protect against them.

Another shot at the OGL

Had to wait to post this because I have not figured out a way to get the permanent link to Dork Tower comics before the next comic posts. On EGS, you can go to the previous day, then click next. That does not work on Dork Tower.

If I'm understanding the context correctly, this is actually a meta-comic; that is John Kovalic and his wife, not Dork Tower characters per se. Dan does this sort of comic occasionally, and Randy Milholland has been doing it a lot lately.
