Default Yet another whip/lasso question

What happens when you attempt to whip or lasso a target that has Reverse Missiles on it?

I'd say the same thing that happens when someone swings a sword (or a morningstar) at you.

And if you tie a rope to a harpoon or arrow and shoot that at them?

Lasso or harpoon: you lasso and harpoon yourself. GM might look at the map and see if any intervening figures or objects are looped in the rope or not.

Whip: Not a thrown weapon. No affected by Reverse Missiles.

Just because it would be fun, if I were GM at the table I'd definitely rule you get tied up in your own nonsense string-weapon!
