About a year ago, Linda and I began listing magical ammunition rather than more +1 flaming arrows because we recognized that Chronicle sheets unfairly rewarded bow users and ignored most other forms of projectile weapons. The term ammunition represents whatever form of ammunition the PC wants to buy. Need +1 flaming blowgun darts? Go for it. Want those three pieces of ammunition to instead be +1 flaming staff sling bullets? Have fun! Would you rather pepper foes with +1 flaming pistol bullets? We're not stopping you.
Basically, you should enjoy the listed ammunition no matter what variety of ranged character you are. Ammunition is anything from arrows to bolts to atlatl darts, using Table 1–7 in Ultimate Equipment as a solid but not exhaustive guideline.
First: I really-really like this.Second: I fear someone is going to screw it up for the rest of us... so, I got to speak up about a possible problem.
Darts (thrown, and from an Atlatl) are re-usable, so if they count as ammunition it's likely going to throw up issues with game balance. "I'll just go pick up this Human Bane Dart and shot it at the human. Best investment I ever made - I seem to use it 2 or 3 times each game..."
I will assume re-usable thrown weapons are NOT going to count as Ammunition for this? Please?
Bolded relevant bits...darts are thrown weapons, blowgun darts, however, are ammunition. Completely different type of item.
