Sling, Variant (5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
The sling does 1d8 crushing damage with a range of (100/400). use of sling bullets instead of rocks changes the damage type to piercing.
The sling is one handed, so it may be used in combination with a shield, but not another weapon.
On a natural 1, roll 1 d20. A 20 causes a simple miss. Anything above ten causes it to deal 1d8 crushing/piercing damage to an ally, as the stone flies off in a random direction. Anything below ten causes it to deal 1d10 crushing damage to you, as you fail to release the stone in time, causing it to shoot straight up and come back down on you, or simply not release, causing the stone to smack you in the face.
