Exotic Light Thrown Melee
|Range Increment:||(Wielder's Strength × 2)|
1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
You can use this weapon to make a ranged attack against an opponent. When wielded by an iaijutsu master, the scorpion whip can do lethal damage, as there is a 2 inch long barbed blade attached to the end. Also, an iaijutsu master is able to modify his/her scorpion whip to also act as a spring loaded grapple hook, when attached to a 25’ or less length of rope. The rope, when coiled around the arm of the master, gives a +1 to AC without incuring any armor check penalties, provided the length of rope does not exceed 25’ in length. When the scorpion whip is thrown, while attached to the rope, it will automatically extend the hooks and coil around its target. If its target is a solid object, such as a wall or opponent, the iaijutsu master can make an attack roll (+10 to hit) to have the scorpion whip penetrate the surface and have the hooks extend inside the wall (or on the other side of the wall, provided the wall is no more than 6” thick). With the flick of the wrist, the hooks will retract, allowing the scorpion whip to be tugged free without effort.
