Weapon Qualities: Poor Melee
A javelin is a spear which has been adapted to be thrown, with no focus on its use in melee. The shaft is not nearly as sturdy as a spear's, making it unsuitable for parrying, and the head is a long, needle-like affair which is difficult to jab into a nearby enemy, though it is ideal for throwing into one a little distance away. As a result, using a javelin in melee inflicts a -2 penalty on all attack rolls. Javelins belong to the "Thrown" weapon group.
