A battle jojo is a heavy version of the popular childrens toy. The strong wire and metal reinforcement makes it an excelent short-range bludgeoning weapon, as well as a surprisingly effective grappling tool.

As an action, the wielder of the battle jojo can attempt to grapple a creature next to them. This grapple is made as a contested check using the attack dice of the weapon against the Athletics or Acrobatics of the target (their choice). When grappled with a garotte, a creature cannot breathe and has to hold their breath. As a result, they also cannot speak or utter the vocal components of a spell. Further checks to get out of the grapple are made as usual.

Fighters and Rogues have class proficiency with battle jojos.
