The Impaler is definitely not: in our FAQ most of this was broken down, but I can't remember if the War Thorka's repeating crossbow falls under that.  I'm guessing that it is like the other bows, crossbows, etc., and doesn't have the mass and kinetic energy of Impaler bolts or heavy throwing spears. 

That's my take on it.

Neither the Impaler of the repeating crossbow are considered hand heal weapons, to my knowledge.  Both affect undead.

It's one of those things that will have to be finalized.   ;)

that was my take on them too, clearly with the impaler, and i would think the repeater is pretty big, does more damage, so it would be in a different class as well.  but thought i would ask as good ole dog is getting my dwarves ready.  YEAH
