Savage Worlds: All About Spears




Probably one of the latest weapons to get love on the gaming table is the spear. Its a great Reach weapon, it gives a Parry bonus. The only shortcoming was Savage Worlds not listing a one-handed version of this weapon, yet they have art of Spartans who use shield and spear. So, let's rectify that in a manner that's probably been done in a classy fashion.

Spear
Damage: Str+d6
Two-Handed Modifiers: +1 Reach; +1 Parry
One-Handed Modifiers: +1 Reach

Lacking the control of two hands, a one-handed spear must depend on a shield to supplement the loss of Parry. For some adventurers who have the strength for it, they don't mind doing just that.
