So, I wanted to make a spear that could be thrown. What do you guys think?

Shortspear
Size 4, DF 1, Pierce 1, Reach 2/Range 5, 0 Parry, Slash and Pierce.

You should check out the own weapon rules on p130. Essentially, you don’t have to call out that it’s throwable, it just has to be the same size as the dweller or less.

Your weapon is slightly more powerful than a default weapon. Essentially, 1DF = 2 pierce = 1 reach = 1 Parry in the point count on those. Yours is functionally a +1 Pierce warhammer. Nothing wrong with having a magic item that’s like that, and even calling it a spear, but it’s not equivalent to a core weapon.

The only spears I could find were sizes 5 and 6, so it wasn't so much that I was designating that it was throw-able, so much as I wanted to make it size 4 so a standard Dweller could throw it.

The warhammer's stats are:
Size 4, DF 2, Pierce 0, Reach 2, Parry 0, Blunt

The shortspear would have one less DF and 1 more Pierce. According to the above point count, one less DF would be equivalent to TWO Pierce, wouldn't it?

Yep, you are correct. Teach me to math on too little sleep ;)

So just up the pierce by one. No cost for throwable really.

Great!

Now, I can have a proper spear-throwing Fardrengir Geirvaldr Viking!

The fact that the entire specialization is about spears, but there are no spears of a size that can be thrown in canon publications, made me salty.

I was also considering making smaller throwing axes. What do you think about this?

Throwing Axe
Size 3, DF 2, Pierce 0, Reach 0/Range 5, Parry 0, Slash

I believe that is what a Francesca is, actually. A smaller throwing axe :)

You should give it reach. Reach 1 is minimum for anything with DF if I remember correctly.
