Throw Icon.png

Throw is an Action that allows the user to throw certain Weapons, Consumables, environmental objects, and even other creatures.

Description[edit | edit source]

Throw an item or creature.

Your Strength affects how much weight you can throw. Heavier items deal more damage.

The damage of Thrown Weapons is the same as the weapon's melee damage.

Notes and Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • A creature may throw items and other creatures weighing up to Strength * 3 kg. For example, a Fighter with a Strength score of 18 can throw objects weighing up to 54 kg / 119 lb.
  • The weight of a creature is not influenced by their equipped items or the items in their inventory, as of Early Access Patch 9.
  • A creature may only be Thrown if it is at least one Size category smaller than the thrower.
    • As of Early Access Patch 9, this limitation is not applied consistently to all creatures. For example, Scratch the dog is of Medium size but can be thrown by other Medium creatures (with 17 or higher Strength).
    • Creature sizes can be increased or decreased by the Enlarge Reduce Icon.png Enlarge/Reduce spell.
