Ranged weapon for a Lizardman

Postby Ruffnut » Mon Feb 06, 2017 4:08 pm

Any ranged weapons (Homebrew or not) that a lizardnan would use. Our Dwarf now wants to be a lizardman. Next session is in 3 Days! Any ideas?

I would say a blowpipe they use them in warhammer, or some kind off throwing star would be cool. Can lizardmen survive outside a tropical area :?:

Yep! They can't survive in cold areas though!

You could arm your Lizard man with Javelins they can be used in hand to hand and as a missile weapon arm it with an atlatl throwng stick to increase range javelin might also work hand to hand underwater too :D

Darts (aka martiobarbuli)?
Javelins/short spears
Throwing axes, perhaps like franciscas?
Halberds (a reference to the old TSR logo). :)

Those sorts of thrown weapons are exactly what I'd expect them to use but I wonder what the gamebooks have had them armed with? Dark Soul was always good for that sort of info but he hasn't been around lately.

I would say throwing spears (as short spear, but hurled) or trident.

If you have them the Saltmarsh trilogy U1 to3 are excelent for lizardman ideas as they are amongst the main protagonists of the series :idea:

Slings and Bolas, maybe with shrunken heads on

In the heads could sometimes ( Leaders?) be various mushrooms spores and poisons for varying affects, sle4ep, hallucination, fear or plain old damage

the blowpipes, shiruken and Atlatls mentioned could also have poison, extracted from enslaved toad like creatures/slaves or just regular tree frogs found in the forests

Seems a little weak more like a goblin or halfling, I would not base hero stats on OOTP, as heroes should be larger than life and stronger than the normal monster, jmo.
And you should give him common 3, lizard man 4.

It is actually a classic hero with 1 less luck and 1 more skill. However, I realised that the classic matrix to create a custom race hero makes them under powered as they are just a almost a classic hero. However, they do have medium claw and armour remember, so if anything they are overpowered.
