Slings- Arrow, dart, dagger, or slave damage?

Postby Rhubardin » Thu Feb 03, 2011 8:47 pm

So I finally got myself a halfway decent left handed sling animation and put together a quick and simple one I plan to offer for sale shortly. However I'm faced with a quandary that notecards and forum searching hasn't answered. Since group chats are down right now I figured this is the best place to ask.

For slings used in gorean meter what damage should they do? If they do arrow, should I make them shorter ranged than real bows? Should they ONLY do slave level damage despite a sling bullet being quite capable of making someone dead? Should i make them faster, but suffer from extreme drops so they're again only useful in the shorter ranges?

Keep in mind that the sling has been both a hunting and military tool that has rivalled the bow in popularity for millenia. Also keep in mind we're not talking about slingshots like Dennis the menace has, but slings like David used to fell Goliath.

Yeah, except it wouldn't take much work.

Okay so after tallying all the votes and customer opinions I'll likely be going with a 'short range' that does arrow damage but is scripted to not go past thirty meters much like darts. The long range will do slave/rock damage but otherwise be indentical to a long range arrow.
