Javelin skill Edit
The javelin is the only weapon to use the javelin skill. There are no artifact javelins.
- they come together with great random, and a spear is brast, and one party brake his shield and the other one goes down, horse and man, over his horse-tail and brake his neck, and then the next candidate comes randoming in, and brast his spear, and the other man brast his shield, and down he goes, horse and man, over his horse-tail, and brake his neck, and then there's another elected, and another and another and still another, till the material is all used up; and when you come to figure up results, you can't tell one fight from another, nor who whipped; and as a picture of living, raging, roaring battle, sho! why it's pale and noiseless - just ghosts scuffling in a fog. Dear me, what would this barren vocabulary get out of the mightiest spectacle? - the burning of Rome in Nero's time, for instance? Why, it would merely say 'Town burned down; no insurance; boy brast a window, fireman brake his neck!' Why, that ain't a picture! [ A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, by Mark Twain ]
