Immunity to bludgeoning: does take damage from falling?

    That makes no sense. Falling damage is listed as bludgeoning damage, nothing states falling damage is magical, so if you are immune or resistant to non-magical bludgeoning damage it should work on the damage from a fall.

  2. Matt says:

    I read it the same way, John. But the syntax often reads “; and bludgeoning, piercing and slashing from non-magical attacks.” That semi-colon makes all the difference, b/c those words then become modifiers for the word “attacks.” The fall isn’t your “attack” rather it is the result of a spell attack (in this case, a levitation spell).

  3. Dave says:

    The immunity is specifically to “bludgeoning damage from non-magical weapons”. The bludgeoning damage from a fall does not come from a non-magical weapon. To that end, bludgeoning damage that results from a spell–for instance Bigby’s Hand or Earthquake–would still deal damage to a target that is immune to any sort of weapon damage.

    I had a character in a fight with a lycanthrope, without magical or silvered weapons. He had to grapple it and drop it off a cliff or something, except it was loke only 50ft. so he had start throwing it. around. yeah he lost, but it was funny.
