A bolas is an exotic ranged weapon.[1]

DescriptionEdit

A set of bolas consists of two or three spheres connected by long cords to a central point. The spheres may be made of heavy wood, metal, or leather bags filled with stones. The cords may be woven leather straps or heavy twine. A typical bolas costs 5gp and weighs 2lbs (0.9kg).[2]

WeaponologyEdit

The bolas is held at the connecting point and twirled in a circle high enough that the ground does not interfere, then released and thrown at the target where they hopefully entangle and wrap themselves around the legs of the opponent, causing them to trip. The bolas requires a lot of skill and practice to use effectively, therefore it is classified as an exotic weapon.[2]

RealmsloreEdit

Bolas were among the weapons favored by the Tabaxi of Maztica.[3]
