The javelin is one of the most versatile weapons of the Hyborian age. Light weight enough to be wielded with a shield, the javelin is a common front line weapon in battles.
Push, stab, push, stab is a motto of infantry the world over.
In addition, the javelin is light enough to be thrown with some degree of accuracy. Enemies fleeing a battle are almost always surprised to find three feet of spear jutting from between their shoulder blades.
