Pike


Military two-handed melee weapon
Cost: 15 gp
Damage: 1d10
Proficient: +2
Range: -
Weight: 6 lb.

The pike is similar to a longspear, except that its superior construction and balance make it usable by gnomes, halflings, and other Small folk.

Properties:
Reach (With a reach weapon, you can attack enemies that are 2 squares away from you as well as adjacent enemies, with no attack penalty. You can still make opportunity attacks only against adjacent enemies. Likewise, you can flank only an adjacent enemy.).
Small (This property describes a two-handed or a versatile weapon that a Small character can use in the same way a Medium character can. A halfling can use a shortbow, for example, even though halflings can’t normally use two-handed weapons.).

Group:
Polearm (Polearms are weapons mounted at the end of long hafts. All polearms also fall into another category of weapon, usually axe, heavy blade, or spear. Polearms are reach weapons.).
Spear (Consisting of a stabbing head on the end of a long shaft, a spear is great for lunging attacks.).
