Tiny familiars throwing splash weapons


Rules Questions


So, Lyrakien azata, say. She is tiny. Is there anything at all, rules wise, that prevents her from throwing splash weapons, presumably comically huge compared to herself, just as effectively as her master can (perhaps more so, given her high dexterity)?

I mean, there should be, given her size. But is there? I'm not aware of any sizing rules for splash weapons.

Doesn't encumbrance become an issue quite quickly, because the splash weapons weight isn't reduced for size ?

Size has no effect on range.

A Lyrakien has a strength of 5 and has a light load of up to 8 pounds. She could fly over the heads of your enemies and drop objects of up to 8 pounds.

8 pounds means she can have a couple on her at a time, in addition to whatever wand or two you give her. Can grab more from your haversack between combats, etc.

Yes, I realize. Hence the use of the word should. As in, a 1.5 foot tall fairy should not be able to throw things as far as a 7 foot tall Barbarian.

Also true; not sure how that works with splash weapons. Does dropping it straight down work? Another case where it should, but I don't know if it does.
