Due to our lengthy arguments over whether shovels should be considered axes or lances, it has been decided that they are both: when equipped with a shovel, the user chooses whether each attack counts as Axe-type or Lance-type (explained conceptually as "switching stances"), and the weapon counts as that type defensively over the opposing team's next Phase. However, to use a shovel as an axe, one must have the adequate Axe-type Weapon Level, and so for a Lance, requiring training in both weapon classes in order to properly utilize this switching strategy. As usual, if the wielder tries to attack using a stance for which they lack the required Weapon Level, the attack will always miss; as such, when a shovel is equipped by a character who only has one of the two required Weapon Levels, the shovel always counts as that type for defensive purposes.
