The Charge The person with the longest lance is the first to strike, the person with the highest roll to hit, if the lance is the same length.
The Hit An average of the defenders STR&DEX against the attackers STR (i.e. Defender Av=12.......Attacker Str=14 therefore the attacker has a +2 modifier). The chance to stay on the horse is (5+Level of Attacker+Modifier). A critical hit and rider staying on the horse, leads to the lance smashing on impact, only fall from the horse on a critical hit.
The Fall Taking a fall results in damage from the lance and a reflex save DC 15 to avoid further injury.
