Combat[edit | edit source]
Humans use sophisticated and flexible tactics against their opponents. The bulk of human troops are infantry. Infantry units use longspears or other polarms in massed groups. These units have the Tower Shield feat. (These units add a tower shield to their equipment, gain +4 to Armor Class, and suffer a -2 to hit penalty while employing the tower shield). Infantry use the aid another combat action to both fight defensively and increase their chances to hit, increasing their effectiveness battlefield. Some infantry units use the longspear's reach as their primary defense. These units have the feat Weapon Focus (longspear).
Human infantry often forgo heavy armor for speed. These units have the Endurance feat and employ forced marches, enabling them to move long distances while maintaining their ability to fight at peak performance. These humans fatigue enemy troops through days of marching and counter-marching, giving them a tactical advantage on the battlefield.
Humans frequently employ horses in cavalry units. Mounted infantry use horses to move quickly while avoiding fatigue, but do not employ the horses in actual combat. Mounted archers use their mounts to harass the enemy with bows. Lancers actively fight from horseback, using their devastating charge to break enemy formations. Mounted archers and lancers emploey the Mounted Combat feat. Lances do double damage when used in a charge.
