(Warrior Skill) (Weapon Class)
The stabbing weapons skill applies to all spears and polearms, if they are wielded in one hand only. These weapons are particularly effective against riding enemies.
If you are wielding a stabbing weapon, you are ready to fight, and an enemy tries to attack you with a shorter weapon, you will automatically try to hit the enemy before being hit. If this attempt succeeds, you have a chance of keeping the enemy at bay - the enemy automatically fails his first attack. The chance of this happening depends on your reach and the opponent's reach: a Troll is much harder to keep at bay than a Hobbit.
