Then it statesQuote:"These special statistics can be adjusted only by penalties, circumstance bonuses, and conditional bonuses."
But as far as I can tell, extra damage dice is not actually a bonus or penalty. While you might roll different dice based on attack type or weapon, a bonus or penalty is always just a single fixed number.
It doesn't label the abilities as bonuses or penalties, it says that these *statistics* can only be modified by bonuses and penalties...
I think you're reading this wrong here. You're right, they're not bonuses or penalties, they are statistics, and the only thing that's allowed to modify them (additional damage dice would modify them) would be circumstance bonuses, penalties, and conditional bonuses.
