You can drop rocks on them, burn them, poison them or fire arrows at them, but be warned that they will fight back.

Many of these weapons suit the medieval-themed setting, so you can expect crossbows and other weaponry from that time period to make an appearance, but there are also sillier weapons such as bowling balls to use in the more ludicrous scenarios, with an overall choice of 30 items in your arsenal to use.
