Weapon Qualities[edit | edit source]
Here is the format for weapon entries (given as column headings on Table: Weapons).
Cost[edit | edit source]
This value is the weapon’s cost in gold pieces (gp) or silver pieces (sp). The cost includes miscellaneous gear that goes with the weapon.
This cost is the same for a Small or Medium version of the weapon. A Large version costs twice the listed price.
Damage[edit | edit source]
The Damage columns give the damage dealt by the weapon on a successful hit. The column labeled “Dmg (S)” is for Small weapons. The column labeled “Dmg (M)” is for Medium weapons. If two damage ranges are given then the weapon is a double weapon. Use the second damage figure given for the double weapon’s extra attack. Table: Weapon Damage by Size gives weapon damage values for weapons of those sizes.
Critical[edit | edit source]
The entry in this column notes how the weapon is used with the rules for critical hits. When your character scores a critical hit, roll the damage two, three, or four times, as indicated by its critical multiplier (using all applicable modifiers on each roll), and add all the results together.
Exception: Extra damage over and above a weapon’s normal damage is not multiplied when you score a critical hit.
×2[edit | edit source]
The weapon deals double damage on a critical hit.
×3[edit | edit source]
The weapon deals triple damage on a critical hit.
×3/×4[edit | edit source]
×4[edit | edit source]
The weapon deals quadruple damage on a critical hit.
19–20/×2[edit | edit source]
The weapon scores a threat on a natural roll of 19 or 20 (instead of just 20) and deals double damage on a critical hit. (The weapon has a threat range of 19–20.)
18–20/×2[edit | edit source]
The weapon scores a threat on a natural roll of 18, 19, or 20 (instead of just 20) and deals double damage on a critical hit. (The weapon has a threat range of 18–20.)
Range Increment[edit | edit source]
Any attack at less than this distance is not penalized for range. However, each full range increment imposes a cumulative –2 penalty on the attack roll. A thrown weapon has a maximum range of five range increments. A projectile weapon can shoot out to ten range increments.
Weight[edit | edit source]
This column gives the weight of a Medium version of the weapon. Halve this number for Small weapons and double it for Large weapons.
Type[edit | edit source]
Weapons are classified according to the type of damage they deal: bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing. Some monsters may be resistant or immune to attacks from certain types of weapons.
Some weapons deal damage of multiple types. If a weapon is of two types, the damage it deals is not half one type and half another; all of it is both types. Therefore, a creature would have to be immune to both types of damage to ignore any of the damage from such a weapon.
In other cases, a weapon can deal either of two types of damage. In a situation when the damage type is significant, the wielder can choose which type of damage to deal with such a weapon.
Special[edit | edit source]
Some weapons have special features. See the weapon descriptions for details.
