Intelligent Choice: An Improvised Master knows the best way to use an improvised weapon. He may add his intelligence modifier to any attack rolls made with an improvised weapon, in addition to any strength modifiers.

A most excellent class! I love it.

The question though, is how much damage each improvised item does.

Hmmmmm, The whole being able to pick up huge and Gargantuan things bothers me. And it doesnt count against his ecumberance? So he could basically kill a Ancient Red Dragon, pick up its body with ease, and then crush everything else in the room in one swing(in fact you would probally use the dragons crush ability) because its body is Gargantuan.

Basically, an improvised weapon deals damage equal to what it's roughly the size and shape of. So, an ordinary wagon would deal damage like it was a mace made for someone huge.

Size is up for interpretation much of the time here, since you have to figure what size of being would use such a large weapon. And the possible improvised weapons are limitless.

You have a point, Myatar. I'll nerf it.

Continuation: There we go. I made it so it's instead based on a weapon of it's size. So he couldn't wield a gargantuan dragon. But he COULD wield any object about the size of any weapon made for a gargantuan dragon.
