Are spears really that rare?
In the 3.6 gnomish cavewoman game I finished yesterday, it seemed every 2nd or 3rd elf I killed had a spear. I had no trouble amassing a stack of them even without polypiling. Was this just pure chance? This game was the first time I've actually used a spear as a (backup/ranged) weapon (surprisingly effective when multishot at expert skill, even before enchanting).
