Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: A 1d12 weapon that's always 1 handed is concerning to say the least

Demilance 20 gp 1d12 piercing 7 lb. Heavy, Versatile (2d6)

A shorter, sturdier replacement for a typical lance. Where the stereotypical lance is meant for cavalry charges, to be used in a single attack before breaking and being left behind, this version is essentially a heavy spear for one-on-one combat. Most effective when paired with a shield, but the handle is long enough for two hands.

Lance Mastery feat (Optional Rule)
  • While wielding a demilance, gain +1 AC as you use its curved form to deflect attacks.
  • While wielding any lance, you can perform an opportunity attack on enemies that enter your melee range.
  • While wielding any lance, if you move 20 or more feet toward a creature before making an attack, you deal 2d6 piercing damage on a successful hit, regardless of whether you are wielding it in one or two hands. The target must make a Strength save with a DC equal to 8 + your Strength + your proficiency or be pushed 15 feet away from you.
