For non-combat expectoration...no roll required hit the target 100% of the time I treated it as variation of the Convenience Casting perk.

Useful if you (like me) have seen 'The Outlaw Josey Wales' a few million times.

So before I start buying PDF's, does Dungeon Fantasy actually have a spitting spikes skill? or do they simply talk about it from a historical/mythical perspective

And I've seen things from a man who can throw a sewing needle through a pane of glass, to another man who can cut watermelon to pieces with ordinary thrown playing cards....being able to spit a spike at a target the size of a walnut from less than a yard away does seem feasible...with how much force, I don't know

The DF line is very practical, doesn't deal with historical/mythical perspectives, and is about killing things and taking their stuff.

The skill is Blowpipe (DX/H), there are stats for spitting needles, and descriptions of the things that can go wrong when using them.

I see someone who has never taken a watermelon seed to the eye. ;)
