DND 5e. Amongst my group there appear to be a number of methods of deciphering the harm from the motion “Fling”.
From the Kraken:
Fling. One Massive or smaller object held or creature grappled by the kraken is thrown as much as 60 ft in a random route and knocked susceptible. If a thrown goal strikes a strong floor, the goal takes 3 (1d6) bludgeoning harm for each 10 ft it was thrown. If the goal is thrown at one other creature, that creature should succeed on a DC 18 Dexterity saving throw or take the identical harm and be knocked susceptible.
The space for the harm calculated is in query:
If the creature is thrown an supposed 60ft however interrupted say 30ft in by a strong floor, is the space then thought-about to solely be 30ft for the harm calculation? This could appear to be supported by the “as much as 60ft” phrasing, but in addition would then suggest that the creature thrown had much less momentum from an interpretation of physics merely as a result of a wall current in the best way.
Or would the harm be thought-about from the complete 60ft of the preliminary throw? The “as much as 60ft” would assert a person could possibly be thrown much less distance by the kraken’s intent, randomly, DM, and many others. Then, the harm in query could possibly be based mostly on this.
The interpretation of the “as much as” is as much as DM discretion. For harm which of those is right?
