Hello there, so I’m creating a compendium for my future fallout 2d20 campaign on Foundry VTT and I noticed that some NPCs had weird weapon stats. I want to make my compendium as clean as possible so there we are :
For example, Paladins from BoS have an “Improved long laser rifle” with 6 DC, Piercing 1, Energy damage, Range M, Fire Rate 2, Two-Handed. Fine so this is a laser weapon with a standard stock and long barrel, but where these 6 DC come from while laser weapons deal 4 DC? What exactly means “improved” in the title?
Same thing for synth coursers with their “Boosted Photon Agitator and Improved
Long Barrel” or elders with their “Long laser rifle” with 5 DC and nothing explain why this rifle deals more damage (nothing about a mod (except again a long barrel and a stock) nor title which indicate an upgrade)
Might be nothing important, this is just annoying to have different stats on a same and unique weapon, and even more for players since “Improved long laser rifle, Boosted Photon Agitator and Improved Long Barrel” don’t exist, theoretically. So, did I miss a rule or was it intentional to simplify damage is deal from enemies?
Thank you to those who will enlighten me!
