# The Hucking & Smashing Calculator

## Purpose

The rules provided in the Player's Handbook and Dungeon Master's Guide for improvised weapons don't satisfactorily reflect the range of possibilities for characters that enjoy throwing things.

If you're a dedicated huck-and-smasher, this calculator and corresponding charts help you quickly determine how far you can throw a given object.

### Limitations

The standard rules for thrown improvised weapons state a range of 20'/60'. You may want to use this if you're not a dedicated huck-and-smahser, and sport a modest strength score but want to know how far you throw an ordinary object (like a wooden bar stool).

## How to Use

### Object Weight (lbs)

Enter the weight of the object you wish to throw in pounds. If you don't know the weight of the object, refer to the table above for a ballpark estimation.

### Carry Capacity (lbs)

Enter your Carry Capacity. This is your Strength Score multiplied by 15. There are also a number of effects and traits that may double this (see 'Carry Modifier' below).

or enter

### Carry Modifier

The value in this field should be 1 if you have no modifiers to this property. Some common modifiers are:

• Size or Enlarge/Reduce: For each size category above Medium, double your Carry Modifier. For a Tiny creature, halve it.
• Powerful Build: If you have this trait, your Carry Modifier is doubled.
• Barbarian, Path of the Totem Warrior: If your Aspect of the Beast benefit is that of that of the Bear, double your Carry Modifier.

Remember, these modifiers stack!

## Rationale

We’ve used the rock throw ability of giants to create a linear equation based off of the average giant's strength score, how far it can throw a rock, and what weight that rock might be based off of the damage it deals.

So next time you're playing your Goliath Barbarian, Path of the Totem Warrior: Bear—try throwing some car-sized boulders!
