Re: Re: Re: Re: Latest Dragon and Natural Weapon Attacks
But they aren't using a two handed weapon. Just one claw (or bite even). Why give them 1.5 STR when they are only attacking with 1 claw?
Think about a boxer (or pugelist, or whatever you want to call it).
If he is already standing close and is going to make several punches, they all have x amount of strength behind them.
Now think about if he is only going to make one punch. The bell is about to ring, or his foe is reeling, or he sees a really good opening, for whatever reason he is going to take one swing. Is that one swing going to have the same force behind it that a normal jab or hook?
No, it's going to have a lot more power to it. He's putting more of his body into it.
That's what natural attacks get 1.5x str when they are only making one attack. They aren't worried about hitting with any more attacks, so they are putting everything into that one attack.
Now as to whether or not it fits the rules, I don't know. But it makes real world sense to me.
