The Halberd -- and Reach


Recommended Posts

Our Conan gaming group would like to recommend that the Halberd be understood to have the Reach capability *going forward*.
(We realize that applying this capability retroactively, may be unbalancing, except in those scenarios which explicitly stated that it did.)
By definition, a halberd is a polearm, with an average length of 5' to 6'.  As Britannica puts it, "It enabled a foot soldier to contend with an armoured man on horseback; the pike head was used to keep the horseman at a distance, and the ax blade could strike a heavy cleaving blow to finish the opponent." If you've seen examples, you can appreciate why this is true. Accordingly, we would recommend that the halberd considered to have reach.

Thanks for reading and considering
