Long Description

This is an updated version of the older iron Ephebian hoplite spear. Its head has been forged out of steel and sharpened to a wicked point. Normally wielded in one hand while the other blocks blows with a shield, the shaft is formed out of hardened, polished ash and has a bronze shoe at the bottom end to balance it.

Appraises As

The steel dory is about six and a half feet long and three inches wide. It is made of steel and could be used as a weapon of type polearm.

Acquisition

Mostly found on hoplites and guards in Ephebe.

The dories on citadel guards are enchanted with 7 thaums, to "a steady octarine glow."

Can be bought from Oplaphoros in Ephebe.
