Hmm. That ain't a bad idea!

Not sure if it should be easier to "speed up" projectiles that are already going fast (improving an arrow to bullet speed, vs doing the same with a thrown dagger).
Now, THAT...is a interesting thought. "Speed Weapon" or some such.

I'm putting Throwing Master on any warrior-type character I'm allowed to now. It's exactly the trait I've been looking for ever since the first time I heard that Heroic Archer doesn't cover all muscle-powered ranged weapons.

One thing I especially like about Throwing Master is that it gives an alternative to Weapon Master / TbaM for those wanting to get the most out of Throwing Art. Weapon Master's primary benefit (up to +2 damage per die) overlaps with Throwing Art's benefit, while TbaM is far too broad for many character concepts.
