I'm looking for the community's advice on the Reach of the Javelin.
In the RQ6 rules, the Javelin is treated solely as a missile weapon. However, one could use a javelin as a [short] spear in melee.
So, my question is: if a character were to use a javelin in this manner, what would its Reach be?
I'm inclined to think that if held in the center [balance] point, a javelin would have roughly the same reach as a longsword (Medium), maybe slightly more, but not enough to count as having a Reach of Large. I mainly say this because of the stated criteria for Large Reach weapons - "two-handed thrusting weapons," is a group of weapons which does not, in my mind, include the Javelin.
What do you all think?
