hurled "melee" weapons damage adjustment

While working through some stuff I noticed that some hurled, missile weapons don't get any Strength (ST) adjusted damage.

I then looked at the melee weapons that are hurled. They don't have the symbol (double pointed, slanted arrow?) to indicate they would use have its damage adjusted by the character's ST damage bonus.

Oversight or do they not get a damage adjustment?

This is mostly because I'm also updating my pc_gen app and thus will matter there in terms of "official"-ness.


What? Me worry?

Re: hurled "melee" weapons damage adjustment

That's because ALL melee weapons that can be hurled (light club, hand axe, dagger, etc.) use ST for adjusted damage. This rule is found in the Strength section (Table 1).

But when you go to Table 77 in 3E, you are looking specifically at weapons that are solely missile weapons. Because not all of these enjoy ST adjusted damage, we have a symbol for which ones do.

Ghul, thanks.

I just didn't look there :-)

I knew it made sense, just couldn't find the table to allay my concern.
