Had a crazy thought for a weapon for a character that has the Pacifist/Bravado flaws, A sling-staff. This is a staff (not sure whether is walking cane size or quarterstaff size) with an odd set of notches at one end. When a pouch with rubber strings is attached to that end, it allows the wielder to hurl sling bullets with great effect. Heres what Im thinking for the stats for it
Category: Versatile Melee, Close Ranged
Properties: Forceful, Precise
Banes: Knockdown, Forced Move, Stunned
Feedback would be appreciated
Not sure why you put rubber there, usually they are just leather or rope of some sort. Rubber is a more modern thing I suppose, but rubber breaks easier, and sling were more about you whirling around your head to launch, not the pull back with rubber we are used to with sling-shots and the such.
So a time period would help some there. Here’s a reference:
My only suggestion is separating the banes between the ranged and the staff, as I don’t feel knockdown or forced move make as much sense for the rock part of it.
Yeah that’s fine I agree with all those points. The only reason I put rubber there was when I was writing it, couldn’t think of anything else
With the bane seperation, how would they be written?
Ie banes: knockdown,forced move(staff), stunned(sling) ??
This makes me think of a lacrosse stick
I would probably do it like:
Melee: Knockdown, forced move
Close Ranged: Stunned
