pampl is on a distinguished road
Speaking of going off-topic, what I don't get is damage dice and bonuses to damage. Why would a ring make your glancing blows suddenly lethal? And why does smashing your great hammer on someone's toe do the same damage as smashing it on their head? Surely a hammer should have greater variability than a cutting weapon, not less.. And why do the unique longswords have a much smaller chance of scoring a critical hit than a normal longsword does? Is there some rational reason they do 4d5 instead of 2d11 or just 1d23 or 1d5 + 9?

Anyway, the whole system is bonkers, but it's part of a fun game so I think there's a justified aversion to messing with it.
