Tiered Weapon Weight[edit]

Isn't it weird that a halfling with Strength comparable to a young blue dragon will never be able to effectively use a pike? Well no more! This variant does not change the effects of weight-related properties, but rather gives creatures the ability to overcome them. If a creature has a feature that makes them count as a higher size for the sake of pushing, pulling, or lifting, they count as 1 size higher for the following. All numbers listed are required Strength scores, allowing for potential homebrew ability scores above 30. Creatures count as 1 size lower for the following while wielding oversize or Large-sized weapons (DMG p. 278). For the sake of this variant rule, a "weighted" property includes the Heavy and Two-Handed properties. If the weapon is a double weapon and two-handed, you must either benefit from both or neither.
