# Cavalier Mounted Charge w / Lance

### Rules Questions

Just looking for clarification on this.

If my Halfling Cavalier has spirited charge and uses a lance while mounted what is the multiplier on the damage?

While charging.

If you are unmounted the Lance 1D6 damage.

If you are mounted the Lance is 2D6 damage.

Spirited Charge gives a triple damage with a lance. [while charging.]

So if I understand this, which I don't, I get 6D6 on a mounted charge. Is that right?

In PFRPG (as it was in 3E) items are added together before being mulitpled.

So lance does d6 normall and 2d6 when charging and spirited charge increases that to 3X normal for 3d6 damage.

doubling a double equals a tripple.

x2+x2 equals x3

x3+x2 is x4

the rule is basically subtract 1 and add the numbers to get final result.

otherwise you start doubling doubled tripples and its stupid

Don't forget that static damage is multiplied as well. It is as if you rolled a critical. So, a lance on a spirited charge does:

3(d6) + 3(static damage)

3d6 + 3([+1 strength] + [+1 luck] + [+1 enhancement]) = 3d6+9

If you hit a critical with your lance on a spirited charge, then it is 5d6 + 5(static damage).

Thanks for the quick replies. This clears things up quite a bit.

is there a place in the rule book that show how this is all figured out.

Page 12, "Multiplying" and page 144, "Criticals"

I assume you meant, given your example above, 5d6 + 15 on a crit.

Don't you use the horses strength modifier too with the lance too?

Only the level 8 cavalier power for the order of the Sword gets that.
