Currently a half-orc fighter 4 (Cavalier) and my DM told me i'll finally be getting a mount in the next module. From what i've read, a lance is basically the best weapon on a mount. But i feel it seems rather un-orcish (my character was raised in the orc community more than human). Currently using a maul and two handaxes.
Is it unreasonable to ask my DM about a possible Horseman's pick weapon where it would be 1D12 or 1D10 bludgeoning but also had the special properties of the lance so i can use it one handed while mounted? purpose is that having a shield for that +2 ac would be invaluable.
I know i should disucss this with my DM, but i'll only be seeing him in a week and he's really busy with other things (exams) at the moment and i should try to only contact him after his exams and when we actually meet for D&D.
Just want to know if what i'm proposing sounds reasonable.
