I've googled "using a spear," "using spear in battle," "battle reenactment spear" and various other related searches, but google keeps wanting me to go spearfishing or buy replica spears for RP. >> The one thing I have found is to keep the point lowered, toward the opponent's chest, and to avoid letting it point up and aimed at their face... is that even accurate? I don't know. Halp?
Edit: M'gawd, you guys, I think this is the most comments I've ever gotten to a post here. XD You guys have given me SO much good info and a lot to think about... though I'm still no closer to figuring out my issue. XD I'm considering giving him a mace... possibly a shield, and possibly sticking him on the back of one of his friends (not their main fighter, but the younger guy who's never seen any actual battle).
