Made famous by shepherds throughout the Old World, the sling is an inexpensive weapon that relies on speed and skill to launch small rocks at opponents. The key benefit to this weapon is that its ammunition can be found anywhere, using acorns or even chunks of rock. Few warriors would ever deign to use these weapons, but Halflings are famous for their accuracy when propelling rocks at larger foes. Slings are normally found in the Moot and are always plentiful there. Though not as impressive as a bow—it lacks the range of bows and longbow —it does have the range equivalent to a shortbow and deals the same amount of damage. Furthermore, ammunition is free because any small, regularly-shaped rock will do. In the right hands, a sling can be a dangerous weapon.[2a]
