    RE: [BIRTHRIGHT] Darts -

    The official rules on str bonus damage with missile weapons is that the
    bonus damage can not exceed the base die amount the weapon normally does.
    For example, a warrior with a 18/00 strength would do the following for
    damage -- dagger max damage would be 1d4+4 (1d4 base weapon damage +4 str
    bonus). This would not be 1d4+6 as is commonly thought.

    Therefore the Gorgon, may get multiple tosses with his darts, but he would
    only get base upto a darts base weapon damage. (d2+2 I believe - books not

    there's been a lot of discussion about the nature of hit points, but I'd
    say that it isn't as if more blood (for example, caused by sword)
    necessarily means more hit points taken away. An arrow sized dart shot
    with excessive strength and direct at someone's vital areas could
    definitely cause more damage to a person than a sword which simply hacks
    at a part of the body.

    Correction, dragon magazine sage advise clarifies the damage bonus aspect.
    The max damage bonus is up to the base die of damage of the hurled missile

    That Vos warrior is now only getting d2+2 per dart. Still respectable in
    local pubs to be sure.
