  1. The SRD only gives a means to determine costs and weights of weapons for Large and Small versions based on the Medium weapons. Any other supplied values are the author's best determination.

This Medium short-spear is black and evil looking. It has an unusually cruel looking spearhead, with large barbs and a wicked point. Close inspection shows additional small barbs on the flat surfaces of the spearhead, and the equivalent of fishhooks set in the shaft--facing the same way as the spearhead barbs, and going a few inches up the shaft. The point is clearly to make it as difficult, destructive, and painful as possible to remove the spear. It requires a successful Str check (DC16) to remove a Hobgoblin spear, and it does an additional 1d6 damage upon removal. In addition, its black appearance is due to a coating of Worg blood; the evil aura creates a -1 attack penalty for Neutral users, and a -2 penalty for Good users. It has a ring at the butt end of the shaft, and when a rope is tied on, it becomes a martial weapon, used as a harpoon. In spear mode or in harpoon mode, it can be used as a 1-handed melee weapon, a 2-handed melee weapon, or a thrown weapon.
