Yea my way adds about 1.5~4.5 points of dmg on average. But I also have homebrew that makes armor a little more forgiving the the wearer, and am working on add some version of defense to make it so high level people aren't always hitting each other.

I presume by HTH damage you mean unarmed damage.

The problem with this is that unarmed damage goes up quite slowly - only one point every two ST, then slower. Whereas damage from a weapon in RAW TFT increases at around twice this rate. So your rule makes ST less important, more of a dump attribute.

This is why I prefer the idea of multiplying the ST by something.
