Default Double fire flame item bonus

If you are fighting a monster that gives your fire flame items double against it and then you mooplicate it making 2 monsters with double fire flame bonus to your weapon. Would you double it then dpuble it again. Or would u just get a normal double bonus to your fire flame item

My brother is fighting tigorilla, lemmingbird, dogwood, and he wants to mooplicate the dogwood. So wouldbhis fire flame item with a bonis of +2 become +8 (+2󫎾)

Default Damage multiplying

This subject was a huge problem. My brother likes to fight to the death about anything that helps me win. So I was fighting 3 monsters. I was down by 3. Well one of the monsters says the damage of fire weapons is doubled. So I had an idea. I would mooplicate (duplicate) that creature making my fire weapons double twice helping me close the gap in power. I had 1 fire weapon that was +2. So what I was going for was 2 creatures with a x2 for fire ability to make my weapon 2x2x2. My brother says that it just means it doubles once. Which makes no sense. He says that adding power and multiplying power is different. I don't see how. It sounds pretty simple and logical to me.

I could have sworn I answered this one, but here's the official answer: I'm going to have to check with Steve. I know what I want the answer to be but I'll get you the official ruling in a few days, depending on how quickly Steve can get back to me. He's a busy man.

Caught him in a lull, apparently. His response: "Straight doubling." So you don't apply the identical bonus twice. This matches the rule about what happens if a monster has a bonus against your Class and another person with that Class joins the fight; you don't apply that bonus twice even though there are two of you.

Sorry, Hulksamuel.

Then what if it was different? If there was a creature that says fire/flame items are doubled and another says they are tripled which would u do? Would you get both because they are different or just the bigger bonus or just the one that came into play first?

Given the ruling from Steve, it would be the greatest multiplier.
