A whip is a long leather cord or strand that can be wielded as a non-lethal, if painful, one-handed weapon. Its usage is distinguished by the cracking sound of its rapidly flicked slash. Whips have an array of uses both in and out of combat; they can disarm, trip, and knock opponents back,[1][2][3][4] and certain enchantments can grant them enough prehensility to be used like a grappling hook.[5][6]

Basic whips can cost 1 silver piece[3] to 1 gold piece and weigh up to 2 pounds.[1][2]

Hellknight Toulon Vidoc wields a spiked cat-o'-nine-tails.
