I like to known how Returns to wielder when thrown wokrs for not Rune weapons?

Is it by a Ritual that the wielder is linked to the weapon or is it the weapons are linked with some thing like the wielder we like helmet or gauntlet?

I think it just returns to whomever throws it.

you're talking about the alchemist version? Well there's nothing concrete that I recall, but I'd say that it probably senses the life aura of the last person to wield it, and returns to that. Perhaps a clever person with Alter Aura could fake it out?

I would say "It's magic"
It knows the same way that your invisibility spell knows if your action is hostile or not.
It knows the same way that a Sanctuary spell knows if an action is hostile or not.
Or how Sixth Sense knows if your in sufficient danger to activate or not.

Basically it works because it's magic.

If you want to drop a weapon and have it return to you, just "attack" something you have no hope of damaging, like attacking the ground with your axe. It looks like you're throwing it away, but it will immediately return for you to attack with

And that may or may not work.
Again it will depend on how the magic works doesn't it.
If the magic is able to interpret "this is not really an attack" (which we know that magic can do because it can tell hostile intent from non-hostile intent) it is quite possible that you will simply drop your axe.

Nah, no no. That'll never work. That counts as a delayed spike and therefore falls under intentional grounding rules.

I can just see Thor being super annoyed after a stressful day saving the world: He comes home, kicks his boots off and tosses his hammer onto the couch so he can grab a cold beer from the fridge, only to have it fly back into his hand, thus making him use his teeth to pop the bottle open instead of a regular bottle opener that requires two hands to operate. Although, he could just use a wall-mounted bottle opener. Those just require one hand. :P
