No, no we cannot. We must math this!

Technically it's falling with an acceleration of 9.8-ish m/s, with the exact acceleration depending on latitude, altitude, and local geology. The extra decimals given are a global average.

"Rate" usually implies velocity, NOT acceleration. So the rate of fall will vary. The object is dense, so air resistance can probably be neglected, making the rate on impact simply (9.8)^(3/2) * sqrt(2*h), where h is the height it falls.

This is, of course, assuming that the cord holding the hand is completely slack, and that its motion at the point of fall is either non-existent or directed straight up. If it's directed down, the speed will be higher, while if it's directed at an angle, the elastic effects of the cord cannot be neglected.

THEN you get the fun of figuring out how much force was imparted to Sugilite! For that, you'd need to know the compressibility of her head so as to determine the time taken for the flail to decrease to 0 velocity, use that to find the average acceleration, then multiply by mass to find the force. Compare to a 'standard' damage source to then determine the damage.

Umm, can you explain that in terms of dice?

Sure. Let's assume the cliff exceeds a 200 foot drop and that the BFS exceeds 400 pounds. Therefore, the damage is...

23d6 + 1d6 per 200lbs.

Requiem_Jeer: I could do more math and compare to D&D damage tables, but I'm lazy so I'll say that that sounds about right. XP

It's really very simple, you roll about 3 Warhammer cubes of d6s, twice.
