Throw People

Recommended Posts

Can someone explain how throwing a person into another person and a wall works.

A troll picks up a human and throws him.   Troll has a 40 strength..

how much damage does the human take from being thrown

how much does he take from being thrown into another human, also how much does the person hit take

how much the human take if he is tossed into a wall or solid object

Use the Throwing rules (6e2 pg 80).

Just to clarify I read the rules and didn’t understand the damage.  I appreciate the page references and still didn’t understand

We will skip over the rules for Grab, CV mods, Resisting Grab and the penalty for Object suitability for Range mod/CV for hitting another person that can generate a DCV, as well as the STR for range based on STR over the STR required just to lift the person/object to be thrown.

6e2 pg 80, mentioned above by IndianaJoe3.

The Limiting factors for Damage are the DEF and BODY of the object/person thrown and the DEF + BODY of the object/person being hit.

This demonstrates the idea of throwing a melon against a wall and it splattering everywhere and throwing a spear through a Shōji (look it up) wall.

The Troll (STR 40) picks up a human, unarmored farmer, 3 PD + 10 BODY, 100 kg., +30 STR, can Throw, 6E 81 pg., with a Standing Throw 24m ( 78.7402 ft.) the Farmer into another target, barn door, armored Knight, etc.

Throwing a Character, 6E2 82 pg.

"In either case this typically counts as a separate Attack Action, so it cannot be performed

in the same Phase when the character Grabs the object/character to be Thrown."

Characters As Weapons, 6E2 124

"Using another character as a club entails a weapon Size/Shape penalty of -2 OCV (if the club” is unconscious) or -4 OCV

(if he’s awake). A character used as a missile is neither balanced nor aerodynamic (minimum of -4 OCV)."

Long story short. Troll can do his full STR damage 8d6 against any target, melee or ranged because the Farmer has 3 DEF + 10 BODY, allowing up to 13 d6

The Target and the Farmer both take the same damage roll and apply it to their Defenses and then BODY and STUN.

In the case of using the farmer v. a Barn door, made of just fitted wood planks that is not very solid, let us call it a:

from 6E FH, 420 pg. a Light Wooden door, with discounted BODY for Poor construction

meaning 3 PD + 2 BODY

The maximum damage possible is 5 d6.  In this way it resonates with Knockback distance = Throw distance

Easy, right?

It makes sense now that you explained it that way, thank you soooo much Lensman!  You really are a hero, man I am glad I bought you as a contact!🤣
