Ubiquitous just like a striking dagger, only can be thrown and uses the missile table. This means it can used in an ambush.

COMMENTS:

  • You might want to limit this weapon to being used in combination with Hamblen's suggested Revised Optional Missile Table (Third Edition, page 84, also find it here Main.OptionalCombatRules ) and/or limit its use against humanoid targets only. Otherwise ambushing and killing ponies, vicious wolves or even unarmored horses on a lucky roll using a throwing dagger seems a bit wrong, even in a heroic fantasy setting.
  • Alternatively you could make this a weapon available only from the Rogues with a base cost of 1 gold. That way players at least have to make an effort/ pay gold to gain this small but still helpful ambush advantage.
