View Full Version : The making of a champion [3.5]

Step 1: be a level 1 Human Warrior. Or even Commoner for that matter. It's funnier with Commoner.
Step 1a: Take the Feeble flaw for a bonus feat.
Step 2: Take Point Blank Shot as your flaw bonus feat, Precise Shot as your 1st level feat, and Far Shot as your Human bonus feat.
Step 3: grab a Javelin, which has a range increment of 30'. As all thrown weapons, its maximal range of 5 increments.
Step 4: keep in mind that Far Shot doubles your range with thrown weapons.

That makes you capable throwing a javelin to 300', or 91.44 meters.

Finally, dig in the archives and find out that the result of the Javelin Throw winner at the Beijing Olympic Games was 90.57 meters.

That's how you make an Olympic champion in 3.5. For extra credit, have a below-average Strength (for some reason, your Str score doesn't affect your throw range at all).

First off, you need Point Blank Shot before you can take either of those, and Precise Shot does not affect distance at all.

Second, what the hell does this have to do with ANYTHING?

It's an entry for Murphy's Rules. It doesn't have to have anything to do with anything, it just has to be ridiculous, sad, or (preferably) both. :smallwink:

I fixed it with step 1a. Now it's even slightly more ridiculous.
