A dejada is a simple one-handed ranged weapon in the sling weapon group.[DSCS:121]

Loading a dejada is a free action requiring the use of both hands.

Ardents, artificers, assassins, avengers, bards, battleminds, clerics, druids, fighters, invokers, paladins, psions, rangers, runepriests, seekers, sorcerers, swordmages, vampires, wardens, warlocks, and warlords are proficient with all simple ranged weapons, including the dejada.

Other classes do not have proficiency with the dejada as a class trait, but any character can become proficient by taking a Weapon Proficiency feat.

Along, scooped basket fitted to a glove-like bracer, the dejada is used to hurl projectiles. Ammunition can be a fist-sized stone, but the weapon is also used to extend the range of explosive alchemical mixtures.
