A mastercraft weapon made by the premier smith of Mistmoore to replace an aged and broken greatspear. Since the smith was an orc, my racist old Cavalier wanted no part of him. But he was convinced to pay for the weapon anyway. After briefly borrowing the Viscount's old greatspear, Sgt. Igist Vin returned to claim the Fang Greatspear on the eve of the Battle of Mistmoore. Sgt. Igist Vin liked it so much (despite the orc runes) that he convinced himself it was actually made by the orc's halfling assistant. The "field-expedient sling" is a recent addition, made using leather strips, a sword, and a Nat 20 roll. Sgt. Vin is, if nothing else, a consummate veteran soldier who can make do with scraps.
This upgraded greatspear has already impaled numerous orcs and ogres, but it soon had the butt snapped off when Sgt. Vin attacked Camus (the half-orc party leader). Don't mess with Camus. Camus stopped Igist AND Igist's horse AND the butt of Igist's spear with one hand and a Nat 20.
Greatspears are homebrew weapons made for me by Croswynd, my GM. They have all the best stats of a spear and a lance, with only one drawback: they can't be used one-handed except from horseback. And even then, one-handed reduces the damage.
Reach: 10 feet
Damage: 1d10 (two hands) 1d8 (one hand) + Strength mod
"Extra Attack +2," "Polearm Master," "Great Weapon Fighter," "Hold the Line," "Unwavering Mark," "Warding Maneuver," "Mounted Combatant," and "ACTION SURGE" are just some of the abilities that make Sgt. Vin a force to be reckoned with. Enemies who seek to close the distance soon find themselves locked down, immobilized, and filled with holes before they can attack. Every gap in their armor, every misstep, every blink of an eye is another opening for Vin to exploit. His weapons blur into grey and red streaks, backed with merciless speed and technique. Enemies who assault Sgt. Vin's allies risk drawing more powerful special attacks from him, or having their attacks completely blocked if Vin is nearby. All of this combined with the world's greatest horse allows Sgt. Vin to kite enemies around the battlefield, before charging in atop his mount to deal maximum shock and awe.
And if you thought all that was crazy, just wait until you hear about Sgt. Vin's horse. His horse is amazing. His horse is Awakened. His horse is a level 6 Battlemaster with hoverboard horseshoes. His horse's name is Sonofabitch the Second. His horse is amazing (and quite friendly, despite the name).
