Talk:Tri-Dagger (3.5e Equipment)
From D&D Wiki
the reason it has it is because it is designed to. unlike an axe or regular blade this punches a large hole(shaped like a triangle) not a slit. The wound heals differently due to u can't just sucher the two sides together. even as much after their use in WWII i'm told that the triangular bladed knives were even outlawed for use in warfare by the Geneva Conventions for this reason. therefore treating it like a regular blade would b very inaccurate.
- Still, the blade pales in comparison to massive wounds that many D&D monsters and weapons are capable of. A dragon bite would rend your limb off and cause significantly more than "3 HP per round". This weapon alone can't have a special rule for bleeding - what you're looking for is a variant rule that any slashing or piercing damage partakes in.
- But you should review what hit points actually represent. Just because you've been hit doesn't mean that you've actually taken a wound. The wounds you are thinking of are represented by critical hits, and wounds that are more aggravating a represented with a higher multiplier.
- Also, blood loss is represented in D&D by Constitution damage, not HP damage. Marasmusine (talk) 03:39, 14 January 2013 (MST)
