Idea to use long spears for soldiers of second and third ranks as old as spearmen phalanx itself. Menaulion is final development of that idea. Heavy spear, which carried by two warriors is strong enough to pierce several soldiers at once and long enough to hit enemies from a safe distance. There is not even the name of country where menaulion was invented or of warriors by whom it was used first time. Now menaulion exist only in undead army as well as many other inventions of lost civilizations. But necromancers usually doen't possess qualitative materials and skilled smiths for production of menaulion. Only when some lich managed to create his own little knigdom with mines and blacksmiths pahalanx of menaulion may be seen.
