Default Re: Know You Own Strength and Power Blow

I think it mostly comes down to whether you think of Power Blow to be more about delivering damage dice, or more about increasing BL.

I tend to think of it as being about hitting (ie damage dice) - a bias I know to be entirely shaped by the name. So I look at the "and you can use it to pick up the giant cast iron cauldron full of coals" factor as an incidental effect. So I'm in favor of a round number for damage dice.

If you think of it as primarily about the BL, then it's best to get a round number for lifting.

I propose, however, a compromise: give +6 ST, and +2 Striking ST. :)
(And +10/+2 for the "tripling" level.)
