Something terrible could've happened.
I lost hold of my weapon during a fight. Rookie mistake, but I didn't lose my cool.
Instead, I picked up nearby jugs and threw them at enemies. Let me tell you, those jugs pack a punch!
Now I finally get what the captain means when he says you can use anything around you as a weapon. Try it!
It's simple. Just pick something up and throw it or swing it. Try doing that to defeat 10 gnolls. That should give you a taste of how useful it this.
