At the Wall's western end stands the Shadow Tower and the men of the Night's Watch who stand their vigil. Like all Night's Watch brothers, the Shadow Tower Spearmen are clad in black leather and darkened steel, suited for warmth against the North's legendary cold. Spearmen make superior flank guards, adept at receiving enemy charges, whether that be from cavalry or infantry, and delivering punishing blows before their opponent closes range. Spearmen can hold a center, if need be, but are better suited staying mobile. They're not suited to lead an offensive move but can easily support such a maneuver.
