Caltrops were effective items used by some rogues and adventurers to dissuade pursuit.[1]

DescriptionEdit

Caltrops were known to come in a variety of shapes and sizes, though typically they had a spherical shape and were lined with either four or six spikes or prongs.[6] These spikes were typically arranged in a tetrahedral pattern, which ensured that when tossed there would always be a spike facing up regardless of how a caltrop landed.[7]

WeaponologyEdit

When dropped on the ground during a pursuit, caltrops did a wonderful job of slowing down and even injuring the pursuing party, allowing a thief extra time to make his or her escape.[1]

LocationsEdit

Though they were surely independently made in other lands of Toril, caltrops were known throughout the north to have been invented in Sundabar. They were a popular export of the Old Anvil Smithy within the city.[8]
