| A piece of cloth and leather for launching stones, adequate for hunting small game like rabbits or goblins. It deals more damage when launching purpose-made ammunition, rather than rocks found on the floor.
"And David put his hand in his bag, and took thence a stone, and slang it, and smote the Philistine in his forehead, that the stone sank into his forehead; and he fell upon his face to the earth."
-KJV Bible, 1 Samuel 17:49.
This weapon falls into the 'Slings' category. It is a one-handed weapon.
Hunting slings are one-handed ranged weapons. They accept both stones and sling bullets as ammunition, but using sling bullets will increase your damage significantly.They deal 7 damage with stones and 9 with sling bullets. Although weaker than bows or crossbows, they only require one hand, making them a good secondary weapon option for characters using shields, and have more abundant ammunition due to the ability to use both stones and sling bullets. Most sling-users will want to upgrade to a fustibalus at some point for superior damage while remaining one-handed.
