Sorry, but Planescape: Torment already defined that as a healing item

A dirty sock with two doorknobs in it.


Every Discworld reader knows the weapon of choice is an old sock with half brick in it. doorknobs! Really!

Ah, I didn''t realize something similar was already being used. All right then, how about we take out the doorknobs and use them as projectile weapons, and then stick your half-brick in the sock. Agreed?

One other thing, to Mr. Noble: Please try to tone down your thread names a little bit. All those asterisks, saying "READ THIS!", and such are overkill. Asking about weapons in an RPG is good enough by itself; the "OK! OK! New post here people!" is totally unnecessary and just plain annoying. Everyone can see it''s a new post; it wouldn''t be in the list of threads otherwise.

What about the ability to throw each other around?
Nothing would look funnier than a character picking up a team-mate and throwing him at an enemy.



Anyone remember a game on the Genesis called Two Crude Dudes? It was a two-player side-scroller, and you could throw each other at enemies in it. My brother and I died several times in that game because we kept taking damage from constantly being thrown at our enemies. You''re right RTS, it was funny to see!

I liked the cone rifle from paranoia. Essentially it is just an ordinary rocket launcher, but typically it was loaded with ''an assortment of shells''. So you had no idea what type of missile you were firing till you fired it. Firing the tac-nuke shell at anything closer than extreme long range tended to have rather fatal results for just about everything within a mile or three.

Lets see...

Dull spoon, +6 vs. hearts

Flashlight, -2 vs. Mirror Creatures

+2 Stick, Save vs. Magic vs. Dog Creatures, if fail, causes distraction

Flaming Butter Knife of Slicing, +5 vs. Butter Creatures

Delete Key of Pressing, +2 vs. Electronics

Mirror of Ugly Reflecting, +20 vs. Vain Entityies

Gun of Dud Blasting, no damage but Save vs. Illusion, if you fail, you are frightened.
