Stunning shuriken


Rules Questions


Is there any way to add Stun to shuriken?

I think it would have to be house ruled. As far as I know the Ki Focus enchantment can only be added to melee weapons.

Bear in mind;

Shuriken is absent from this list - but it's ammunition none the less. I presume it follows these rules as well.

Equipment: "Although they are thrown weapons, shuriken are treated as ammunition for the purposes of drawing them, crafting masterwork or otherwise special versions of them, and what happens to them after they are thrown."

There you go! Thank you Grick!

If you could enchant shuriken with this ability, then you'd get fifty for the price of enchanting one non-ammunition thrown weapon, or one for one-fiftieth of the price, or any multiple thereof.

Yep. Assuming it's a +1 equivalent, you could get 50 +1 something shuriken for 8,310 gold, which is 166.2 gold each.

Assuming you're throwing two per round, and assuming one hits, that means you're spending on average almost 250 gold per round.

Actually, more interesting would be shuriken with spell storing ability.

Just re-read the description of the Spell-Storing ability...er...why is it not legal now?

Because shuriken are not melee weapons.
