# [PFS] two-handed rule and character help

### Rules Questions

Hi everyone I was hoping somebody could help me with 2 questions I have?

1st this is more of a math problem for a while I seem to have been forgetting to add 1-1/2 with my greatsword and after going over it I am unsure if I am correct in my new dmg calculation. Currently I have 4 strength modifier and I was wondering if 2d6➕7 is correct for using a greatsword?

2nd I am working on a dual wielding tengu fighter and was unsure of this but since it racial ability grants it proficiency with a bastard sword am I allowed to wield it one handed without penalty or do I need to have exotic weapon feet bastard sword to wield it one handed?

Hi Danszer!

I flagged this to be moved to the rules forum instead of PFS but I thought I would answer your questions as well.

A strength modifier of 4 using a two-handed weapon (which does 1 1/2 damage) means you do 2d6+6 damage with a plain old greatsword.

Tengus do count as having the exotic weapon proficiency.

Thank you and my apologies for putting it in the wrong section.

How is 3 half of 4? 18 (or 19) Strength using a greatsword is 2d6+6 (before modifiers for magic, Weapon Specialization, etc). This is, incidentally, a huge jump from 16 (or 17) Strength, since you round down: A +3 modifier renders 2d6+4 because half of 3 is 1.5 (for a total of 4.5) and you always round down to the nearest whole number.

I was un sure because it stated 1-1/2 which at first glance I assumed it meant add 1 then 1/2 the modifer but apart of me felt I might be off so I asked here.

1-1/2 is a somewhat ugly way of writing 1.5; so yeah, a 1-1/2 times 4 is 6.

Basically, you add 1x (4) then 1/2 again (2) for a total (6)

1 and 1/2 times str

When you Power Attack, you add that to the number (so at first level, another 2, but it is plus 3 with a Two handed weapon. (6+3=9)
