sffp is on a distinguished road
The alphabet problem.

So... when you fire ammo from your weapon, you type
or just a simple
or if repeating

When you throw ammo (or weapons or knives or ANYTHING), you type

Because it lists your "throwable" ammo anew
a) flask
b) dagger
c) pebbles/shots

rather than as inventory slots

The problem is once you run out of 'throwable" objects
It reverts to straight up asking you to throw inventory

So you might run into this scenario:

The large white snake is targeted.
The large white snake hisses furiously.
The large white snake flees in terror.
You re-arrange your quiver.
You have no more Iron Shots (1d4) (+0,+0) (0)
Your Necromantic Tome [Into the Shadows] hits the large white snake.
You have no more Necromantic Tomes (a).
The Necromantic Tome [Into the Shadows] breaks

This can be very deliberating for a young nec....
