Returning (5e Variant Rule)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search


A weapon with the returning property has an aerofoil design that allows it to return to the thrower when thrown.

If you make a ranged attack with a returning weapon and miss, you catch it at the end of your turn if you still have a free hand. Returning weapons need lots of space to bank and return to the thrower. There must be no obstructions (such as walls or trees) in a circle around the target of diameter equal to the distance to the target.
