Spearmen-at-Arms (Shields)

Put a spear in a man's hand and tell him to brace and he will. He will also hope, and pray.

Each Midsummer, commoners flock to their Lord's castle to present their sons in the hope that they will be trained as Men-at-Arms. For a peasant to have a son accepted into the ranks of a Knight's household is a great honour. Some young peasants will have been guided towards this goal through their entire life, encouraged to stand up straighter and taller than the usual peasant 'slouch' to better improve their chances of selection. All morning and afternoon the Knight inspects the candidates. By dusk, the luckiest and strongest are selected and are taken back to the castle where they are given basic training and outfitted in the livery of their Lord.

Attributes

  • Charge Defence vs. Large
    When bracing, this unit negates the charge bonus of any large attacker.
  • Hide (forest)
    This unit can hide in forests until enemy units get too close.

Strengths & Weaknesses

  • Shielded
    Shields have a chance of blocking arrows, bolts, rifle shots and similar small arms fire - but only in a forward facing arc.
  • Poor Leadership
    This unit suffers from poor Lord or other encouraging units nearby.
  • Charge Defence Against Large Foes
    When standing and bracing against a charge of large enemies (such as cavalry or monsters) this unit will negate the enemy's charge bonus.
  • Anti-Large
    Anti-large units have an advantage against targets that are at least as large as a horse. This advantage can be a damage bonus against large targets or an attack that focuses on a very small area. However, some units are simply better against large targets because their attacks are slow and easy to dodge by skilled melee combatants.
