Fling Ally

( Races of Stone, p. 139)


You can launch your comrades into the air as if they were thrown weapons.


Rock Hurling (RS) (or racial ability to throw rocks) , STR 19, size Large or larger (goliaths qualify by virtue of their powerful build racial trait),


You can pick up an ally at least one size category smaller than you and throw him toward a specific square up to five range increments away. It takes a move action to pick up an ally and a standard action to throw that ally. You make a ranged touch attack (against AC 5) to throw the ally to the chosen square. If the touch attack hits, the ally lands in the square you designate. If the touch attack is a miss, randomly determine in which square the ally lands, using the Missing with a Thrown Weapon diagram on page 158 of the Player's Handbook. If the ally lands in a square that is occupied, she lands prone in that square. In any case, the ally doesn't provoke attacks of opportunity for this movement. Allies one size category smaller than you have a range increment of 5 feet, while allies two size categories or more smaller than you have a range increment of 15 feet. If you have the Improved Rock Hurling feat or the racial ability to throw rocks, the range increments improve to 20 feet and 40 feet respectively. Goliaths are treated as Large creatures for the purpose of this feat, allowing them to fling Medium allies with a range increment of 5 feet and Small or smaller allies with a range increment of 15 feet. You must be strong enough to lift the ally over your head (the ally's weight cannot exceed your character's maximum load) to throw her. See page 162 of the Player's Handbook for more information on carrying capacity and maximum load.
