You swung a staff until you were ready to swing a sword. Then you went on all kinds of adventures — fighting monsters, casting spells, and saving damsels in distress. At least that was how it was supposed to work, but I didn’t believe a word of it.
Maybe it really was like that a long time ago. But I didn’t remember my father ever saving a damsel, fighting a monster, or even swinging a sword. He didn’t even carry a sword, although he did help me swing a cane when I was younger.
