Throwing Weapons, Athletics or Throwing ability for a retest?

Post  Bob MacCoy on Mon Dec 31, 2012 2:28 pm

Default Laws of the Wild uses the Athletics for a retest on a throwing weapon. However the Dark Epics Book adds in the Throwing ability for thrown weapons. STs, which is the correct one to use in this game?

My feeling:

For throwing weapons designed to be thrown, 'Throwing' is appropriate.
For improvised weapons (chairs, trees, kinfolk), 'Athletics' is appropriate.

Ok. Based on this I wanted an ability for tossing Bob Kitchen Chemistry Bomb which he usually puts into plastic milk jugs, so it should be Athletics. Correct?

On the sheet I turned in during the last game I bough throwing, can that be changed to Athletics?

Athletics and Throwing do have different mechanics. Throwing allows you to use your Mental traits (like Firearms does). Athletics does not, but athletics also applies to tackles, chases, fleeing, catching, climbing, jumping, and...sports.
