Default Re: Enchanting a Weapon vs. Target X

I don't think I would want a super specialized Limited magic weapon.

I'd rather make/use a wide use magical weapon.

Sword of Sharpness comes to mind.

On any double damage to hit roll, the victim takes a hit directly to a limb, and regardless if it's 2 hits or 18 hits, the limb is severed. On a triple damage the head is severed.

Beyond these exceptional hits the weapon is just treated as a magical weapon of fine craftsmanship, being +1 to hit and +1 to damage, as a fine weapon of this caliber is require to create a Sword of Sharpness.

I concur, that generally the thought process.

But... the Sword of Sharpness mentioned above only functions on a double damage or triple damage roll.

It's actually Less "critical" to strike than the Optional Crippling rule on ITL p. 122

But...the Sword of Sharpness is much more defined, If you Double, a Limb is severed...bring on Regeneration or your are SOL.

Roll a Triple, and decapitation, no save...Bring on a Wish.
