View Full Version : GURPS Rules Question: Using a human as a weapon.

March 18th, 2018, 03:37
Greetings, So brainstorming question here...

So how much ST would a character need in GURPS to pick up an average unarmored dead human male body on the battlefield to use as a 2-handed weapon. The character plays a Half-Giant who is SM+1. So I can see someone that big being able to wield a corpse by the ankles to swing around as a weapon... but I wonder what ST would be required to do so.

Second question what would you consider the damage to be? Somewhere around a quarterstaff at SW+2 cr?

Thanks for any who help me figure this silly question out.

Probably should have BL in excess of the body's weight, & treat as an appropriate-sized club (or flail?)

I think I saw something very similar to this question being asked (and answered) over at the GURPS forums at Steve Jackson games.
