The attachment is long enough to hit her own fingers. Seems somewhat impractical. Spool of thread is much more useful in a combat situation.
The only redeeming thing about me is that I'm better than everyone else.

Looks like a ornate flail attached to a padded cushion.

Haha, I just imagined a medieval woman hiding a mace in her threading cushion for protection, would have been quite a surprise  :mrgreen:

It is actually a threading distaff;

For some reason, really prominent in imagery depicting violent women;






I believe it is the medieval equivalent of a woman beating a man with a frying pan or some other appliance that is traditionally connected to a womans role.

Hm. Could you point out the western dudes?

Thing is, they're all wearing Japanese clothing so it could be any of them. This was drawn before most artists had access to Europeans so they probably just winged it

Maybe I have just a simple humour but when I went through a roll of arms from 1480 (Conrad Grünenbergs Wappenbuch) yesterday and stumpled across this I had a good laugh:


It's the coat of arms of the Counts of Celje.

There are other great pictures in the book like several noblemen's coats of arms depicting the french tricolour (including a suitable helmet with crest) or a dog king surrounded by his dog-court.  :lol:

See? JRPG weapons DO have a historical basis!
