His stance really does need to change for the same reasons we changed Trilby`s stance. He can`t really pull off any kind of attack from that stance. Hell, even walking like that would be awkward.
If only the tip of the spear where in FRONT of his feet - from our perspective - that`d be ok. Not exactly a good fighting stance, but at least he could stab people instantly without much trouble. But the way it is, it doesn`t make sense and it`s not very practical either.
It's a double-ended weapon. Regardless of how he holds it, one side would be awkward to use as a weapon without repositioning it.
Not only is this not true, but also probably not valid as an argument, since this stance manages to make BOTH sides awkward and unpractical for immediate use.
the way he holds his weapon is only relevant for three moves: Skewer, Scythe and Get Over Here.
Considering he has a total of ten moves, three is a lot.
Also, I haven`t played any other Trilby games except Art of Theft, but from this video I`ve seen, Cabadath seems to grab people alot. Usually by the neck or head. Maybe it could be an attack? He could probably use a quicker, close range move to deal with characters like Nikujin.
