I don't know if the arbalest should have the multi-shot attack. I think it makes it too powerful.


I think spear men need more attacks. Maybe a longer ranged impale, or a "critical strike"?
Critical strike would be a more powerful version of melee, but would cost more.
The enemy uses psy power to strike accelerate their spear (not throw it) into the enemy.

Spearmen only have three attacks. That might be okay for enemies, but I think your future teammate should have more attacks. Normal archers only have one or two attacks, but Rahel has four. Normal spearmen have only three attacks, but your future teammate will probably have more.

Maybe instead of adding a longer ranges attack maybe the spearmen grabs his spear like a staff and jabs at his sides

That would be nice. As of right now, spearmen can only attack enemies on a few squares.

I assume that in the Spear Jab, the Spearman is facing north (up).
I like that idea (and I remember something similar being discussed in the old forums).

Another attack talked about in the old forums was a diagonal attack (2 diagonals possible):
XO
OS
S - Spearman facing north
X - Affected space

Indeed, a similar idea was mentioned on the old forums. I think the diagonal one can be rather useful, especially in bottle-neck situations, and simply areas where there is little space. This will make a unit unique, since all other units go horizontal/vertical, rather than diagonal with their one-tile attacks.

No, Rahel accomplishes the same thing with Split shot, but this would be a great way to augment her abilities. Would this attack be stoppable by terrain? The spaces the rocks take up leave room for a diagonal attack.

Split shot takes 2 or 3 tiles, not one, and it is a ranged attack, not melee.
I was thinking about the issue of this being a stoppable attack, and I think that the best way would be "no": an obstacle in front of a spearman shouldn't really prevent him from attacking an enemy on a free adjacent tile via a tile that's also, most likely, obstacle free.

I agree with KZ. Its not as if the spearman lunges forward, stabs the enemy to the side, and jumps back. All he does is attack in a diagonal line. Would there be an attack for both directions, or would you be able to chose which side you attack?

I think this attack can take up two attack spots, so that the player can choose which side to attack (I can see how Niven might be only able to throw the knife in one direction, using his one hand only, but I find it absolutely ridiculous that a spearman can do a diagonal jab only in one direction).
Oh yeah, let's have "Diagonal Jab" as the working name for this attack.

As in TSoG you can have up to 8 attacks, I don't see any reason to not include the Diagonal Jab and the Piercing Throw a long with any other attacks.
