[BECMI] Combat Maneuvers: Set Spear vs. Charge

I think this has come up maybe once in my time playing and running BECMI. Maybe because noone uses spears? Has anyone used this combat maneuver in your campaigns? :)

I do believe I used it in the first part of your Vales campaign.

Edit: Yup! In the fight against da bears in the first chapter (and it actually worked!)

Haha, that may be true! So I guess I've seen it used twice then! :D

In almost every fight during my longest Becmi's campaign.

Dagger throw and even sword throw (thanks to weapon masteries and Ladyhawke) were pretty common too.

I think it's equal amounts lack-of-spear and lack-of-charging-enemies
