Lifting and Throwing

The following table details the amount of weight that a given character can lift and carry, and the distance he or she can effectively throw it. A character’s Lifting Capacity is equal to their (Strength + Athletics) / 2 + Epic Strength successes.

Characters who wish to throw an object at a target that is not directly in their line of sight must possess the Ricochet Symphony knack, and any other obstacles that the object strikes may slow the missile or reduce its distance at Storyteller discretion.

When throwing objects that are large or clearly not intended for throwing, subtract the Lifting Capacity required for the object’s weight from your Lifting Capacity and compare the result to the table. For example, if Anita’s Lifting Capacity is 20 and she wants to throw a tank weighing 20 tons, she subtracts 15 (the Lifting Capacity required to lift the tank) from her 20 to gain 5, which, according to the table, tells her that she can throw the tank 100 yards.
