Hammer
There are actually rules for Hammers (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/equipment/goodsAndServices.htm#hammer) already.

As well as rules for crowbars (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/equipment/goodsAndServices.htm#crowbar) if you want.

Highly useful both in and out of combat, his was made of adamantine! :smallbiggrin:

In Tales of Symphonia, Genis wields a kendama as a weapon. Could be fun to stat out.

We're not sure why all the weapon shops sell weaponised kendamas in increasing order of how much they should be kept out of the hands of a 12-year-old, but shh.

I don't think that anything which could be classified as an improvised "club" or "throwing stone" is really that unusual of a weapon. Yes, I do not expect to be hit with a flying stapler or a curtain rod, but it would hardly be an unusual weapon to see.

What exactly are you looking for here? A list of household items that could be picked up and swung? Some sort of categorization? For categories I'd expect to see something hard that you could hold in your hand (stapler, figurine, anying small and metal really), something longer that you could swing like a club (stick, pipe, curtain rod, baseball bat, fire poker), and anything that could be lifted up and smashed up against a target (TV, microwave, breastplate, table, chair). You'll also have "small stuff that can be thrown" (water bottles, computer modem) and "large stuff that can be thrown" (TV, microwave, breastplate).

Are you rather looking for a list of items that could be effective weapons in combat, instead? Most tools do not make effective weapons, precisely because they're intended to be used repeatedly in controlled conditions. Weight and balance are a secondary concern to durability. Almost every weapon has a tool it is based off. There's knives, cleavers, machetes, hammers, sledges, bats, crowbars, threshing flails, sickles, scythes, pitchforks, hoes, shovels, smithing hammers, pitons, picks, ice axes, and lots of other tools out there.

All are improvised weapons see SRD improvised weapons:

Improvised Weapons
Sometimes objects not crafted to be weapons nonetheless see use in combat. Because such objects are not designed for this use, any creature that uses one in combat is considered to be nonproficient with it and takes a -4 penalty on attack rolls made with that object. To determine the size category and appropriate damage for an improvised weapon, compare its relative size and damage potential to the weapon list to find a reasonable match. An improvised weapon scores a threat on a natural roll of 20 and deals double damage on a critical hit. An improvised thrown weapon has a range increment of 10 feet.


You could simply rule that being hit by a cast-iron skillet is like being hit with a light mace and a baseball bat is the same as a Medium Club and rolling pin is a Small club.

Here was one interpretation of improvised weapons:http://scratchpad.wikia.com/wiki/REd20_Improvised_Weapons

What I don't get about the ipmrovised weapons is the proficiency thing. Like a Crowbar would really be 20% less likely to hit than a regular club.

Because a crowbar was designed balanced and gripped to open things, not hit people.
