Weapon size greater than large?


Rules Questions


another spell related question

cast enlarge and gravity bow, you should do damage two sizes larger than medium. I can only find listing for large.


hmm, I'm going to guess this is like going from Tiny to Large, so for a 1d8 bow, that's now 3d6.

In general, damage increases by about 50% for one size increase, or 1.5x1.5 = 2.25, so 125% for two size increases. Average damage on 1d8 = 4.5. 4.5x2.25 = a little over 10. Average damage on 3d6 = 10.5, so fair enough. Though 4d4 is an option, too.

Probably worth noting, the enlarge spell only increases your size and the size of gear you have on your person. Projectiles revert to their normal size after they are fired.

I suppose you could get around this by carrying large size arrows, dropping them before enlarge person is cast, then picking them up again...

Ah, that's interesting. Didn't think about them reverting...

also a huge arrow would be 3d6 (equivalent to a large greatsword) most people use the improved natural attack lists to determine weapon damage, you can also use the medium and large conversions to see what 1 damage step would look like (so a large arrow goes from 1d8>2d6 and a medium item with 2d6 would become 3d6 so a huge arrow is 3d6).
