Interesting! I have a 5th edition Melee copyright 1981 that says spear is
1d+2, but the AM rules says it's 1d+1 (two handed). An older copy of Melee
1977 I have (coincidentally identical to
http://www.mocagh.org/otherbook/fantasytrip-melee.pdf) says 1d+1.

Back in 2007 I had changed the Java version of the simulator to make the
spear damage 1+2 instead of 1+1 (see comments on
http://fuhrmanator.webs.com/tftmeleesimulator.htm). So, it's controversial.
But I think the 1+2 is looking like a typo in the 5th Edition (I recall
other stuff being off in that, too, perhaps because Steve Jackson was
already gone when it was released?)

Anyway, I suppose I could make spear damage yet another option.

Not going to change anything until Robert Ward's done having fun!
