That being said, dividing all weights by, say, 4 might be a good idea; adjusting the code so the rules dont change shouldnt be hard.
I personally think that weapons should be more competitive to one another...str/dex and number of blows are all factored into the weapon weight and also the damage dice. I feel like some weapons get the shaft are about useless imo...lucerne hammers and tulwars being a few...heavy weight and low damage output making them undesireable weapons. And also their isn't even an artifact that is a they get the shaft.....but all in all they have to be balanced, heavier weapons shouldn't get as many blows as lighter weapons in example,
But I think adjusting damage dice and making some weapons more "similar" to other weapons to make them more competitive is entirely possible, and is something I have tweaked with from time to time.
