Weapon damage beyond 2d10

Post by kryssalmighty » Thu Aug 13, 2020 11:13 pm

The character I am playing is using a Butchering Axe which is not in the weapon database so I am having to add it in as a custom weapon. The damage dice for it is 3d6 but the system does not go beyond 2d10 so when I manually enter 3d6, any size increase is not being modified.

Am I doing something wrong here or is there a way to incorporate damage dice higher and i am missing it?

Thanks in advance for any help!!

In the Tables worksheet, use the Weapon Dmg. Adj. link in the upper left. This brings you to the WEAPON DAMAGE ADJUSTMENT BY SIZE CATEGORY table: That's where the definitions of weapon damage occurs. See if it can handle your custom weapon damage.
(note that I don't think this saves with the character - i.e. the .tos file). You're actually the 1st to ask this...!

Create it as an item that deals 1d12 damage (basically copy a Greataxe) and give it the effects:

Permanency: Yes
Effect #1 Name: Butchering Axe Size Category Adj
Effect #1 Type: Unnamed
Effect #1 Modifier: 1
Effect #2 Name: Butchering Axe Attack
Effect #2 Type: Unnamed
Effect #2 Modifier: =IF(i_STR>IF(res_SizeIndex>4,18,16),2,0)

TOS+ is incredibly powerful and can handle just about anything you throw at it. I agree with admin. The subscription is worth it for the tech support alone.
