I don't know man, throwing a crossbow would be a bit silly.

Meh. Most weapons aren't meant for throwing, so you'd have weird results. Not to mention that that'd mean every weapon would need two versions; one for players and one for bots, because else bots will probably fling all their armament at you and then try to punch your lights out and your face in.
Nords ruled by King Ragnar, Khergits ruled by Sanjar Khan, Rhodoks ruled by King Graveth, Swadians ruled by King Harlaus, Vaegirs ruled by King Yaroglek. All those peoples live, fight, and die in the continent of Calradia. The Nords and Rhodoks field solely infantry and archers, the Swadians and Vaegirs have infantry, archers and cavalry and the Khergit field almost exclusively cavalry. No such things as "infarty" or "calvary" exist. Play Vikingr!

It would be nice to add the ability of throwing bottles and chairs in barfights though...
But on the battlefield... no. Seriously, ever saw someone throwing away his sword?

It's a stupid Idea. I can already see throwing great bardiches or zweiharders... Not to mention lances or pikes.

Well it was two knights who tried to stop an evil mage from fleeing and one of them flung his sword after the guy and it got stuck. So it wasn't even all THAT far fetched (in context.)

I was thinking, why can't we throw spears? The Romans have heavy javelins, so why can't we throw spears? Usually they're stable enough if you want to throw it, probably to chase fleeing enemies? And since mostly spearmen have sidearms, they won't go punching people's faces. An i only mean spears, not other polearms like staves or scythes.

There are mods with throwing spears in it.
In the Eagle and the Wolves (for M&B 1.011), you can throw pilums and throwing lances.

Yeah.. I can see Rhodoks. Rhodoks throwing their spears at Swadian cavalry and then they take swords to stop the charge... yeah, sounds very good and reasonable... :roll:

Rhodocks have mostly pikes. Also, he probably means that 'throwing spears' should be a throwing weapon, just like javelins, to use BESIDES the common spears. Like Sea-raiders with THROWING axes and MELEE axes.

No, what I meant was normal spears (spear, shortened spear, bamboo spear) to be used as a desperate measure one-time throw. I've read somewhere that an army of spearmen throwing their spears at fleeing enemy in a futile attempt to stop them.

THROWING GLAIVES. NYUH. *glaive twirls through the air*

Or better yet, throwing great hammers.
