|Chakram, Heavy||+2||1d6||5/10||5 gp||5 lb.||Heavy Blade||Off-Hand, Heavy Thrown, Returning|
The Chakram is a beaten ring of metal, which can be thrown by a skilled individual. The larger vada chakra were worn around the neck and thrown or dropped down on the opponent vertically.
- Heavy Thrown
A ranged basic attack with a heavy thrown weapon uses your Strength instead of your Dexterity for the attack and damage rolls.
A chakram is light enough that you can hold it and attack effectively with it while holding a weapon in your main hand. You can't attack with both weapons in the same turn, unless you have a power that lets you do so, but you can attack with either weapon.
If you miss with a ranged attack made with a chakram, you can catch it as a free action. If you do not wish (or are unable) to catch it, it falls at your feet in your space. A magic chakram teleports back to your hand with no action, or into a sheath or backpack you are wearing if you wish.
