Swordspear 30 gp 1d10 piercing or slashing damage 15 lb. Special, Versatile (1d12), reach, heavy, two-handed.

A swordspear is similar to a normal spear in length, but with a bigger, wider blade that sacrifices the balance of the spear stripping it of it's ability to effectively be thrown, as well as making it more difficult to wield.

The thick "spear tip" can allow for large, slashing attacks as opposed to the normal piercing strikes of a spear. Prior making an attack on a creature, a swordspear's wielder can choose to deal either piercing or slashing damage against the target. If it is not decided prior to an attack, the damage defaults to piercing damage.

Special. Gore, when making a piercing attack you can spend your action to try and grapple the targeted creature, on a successful grapple the creature is gored on the swordspear allowing you to at a later turn rip the spear out of the target as a part of your next attack action to deal an extra 1d10 damage. When a creature is grappled this way they're lifted into the air to prevent them from moving. When the next attack happens the creature is thrown off the spear sending them back 10 feet.
