    tongue What's the Damage of a Thrown Roy Greenhilt?

    This is (obviously) just for the lulz... but...

    Is it 1 object (paperweight improvised as boulder: Roy)?
    or
    2 objects: Roy (bludgeoning damage) + Sword (slashing damage, like a throwing Axe; just... you know... not an Axe)?

    Does V require Proficiency - Exotic Weapon: Flying Meat Shield (like a Flying Talon; just... you know... not an Talon)?

    Roy's sword is magical and slicing. Does that count like the magical razor-sharp talons of death Blackwing wanted?

    SOOO MANY QUESTIONS!!!

    Forceful Hand cannot throw an object, only push it. So you are making a melee attack, not a ranged attack. Since the hand has no class bonuses that give it multiple attacks per round, you can only hit with 1 object.

    You are trying to hit a 35 AC Nightcrawler with a -4 attack penalty for using an improvised weapon. You will only hit on a natural 20.

    A paralyzed Roy would have a damage of 1d6 bludgeoning. Even with a double damage critical hit, 12 damage is not enough to overcome the Nightcrawler's 15 damage resistance.

    So the answer is zero damage. Blackwing's strategy is much better, play for the 5% chance of a hit from the Greenhilt Sword.

    wouldn't Roy count as an improvised weapon?
    Current characters:
    Drakirr (Blue Dragonborn Warlock)
    Alyfyldyr Hyalythki (Rock Gnome Wizard)
    Harilidir (Hald-elf Bard)
    Kazaharad Akaztkl (Goliath Barbarian)
    Luft (air-genasi druid)
    And of course Lizard Wizard (Lizardfolk Sorcerer)

    Presumably Durkon is supposed to cast something to restore Roy, but somehow I would not be surprised if Roy+sword are used as an improvised weapon in this way. There could easily be a few end of strip gags in it.
    Ever wondered how many games are mentioned in the comic? I have listed them all in a geeklist: https://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/2...es-order-stick

    How to deal with Xykon:

    Paralyze Roy.

    Sling him around.

    100% success!

    Fail-proof.

    The scouring of the Shire never happened. That's right. After reading books I, II, and III, I stopped reading when the One Ring was thrown into Mount Doom. The story ends there. Nothing worthwhile happened afterwards. Middle-Earth was saved.
