No weapon says more about the art of combat than the lance. Easily the largest and heaviest weapon made for warfare, the lance is far too unwieldy for a foot soldier to use reliably. However, if that same soldier strikes from horseback, the lance becomes extremely dangerous. The combined inertia of lance, soldier, and mount join as one to force a great deal of damage into a small area. A good hit from a charging soldier's lance can cause unbelievable wounds on just about any creature.
