Stats for 1-H Spears

So there are no 1-H spears in the Core Book or the Armory, despite the Tribal Warrior profession wielding a spear and shield. Is this accurate?

If so, does this mean the Tribal Warrior is wielding a throwing spear instead of a melee weapon?

There is a rule for that in the Aventuria Armory
pge 56:
"Wielding Two-Handed Polearms with One Hand
Even though polearms normally require two hands to
wield, characters may wield them one-handed, but this has
the following effects: change the weapon’s effective reach
from long to medium, subtract 1 DP from the weapon’s
damage, and lower the PA modifier by 1. This rule makes
it possible for a warrior to use a spear and a shield at
the same time. Note that it is not possible to wield two
polearms effectively at the same time."

Thus the tribal warrior is using a spear and shield. Should this rule have been in the core rules? Possibly. It was addressed eventually.
