Weapon Damage Type (Bludgeoning, Piercing, Slashing)

Please understand how your weapons work.

Poking at a knight in armor with a club probably won't be effective.

Likewise, arrows don't make good slashing weapons.

Each weapon is assigned a damage type: Bludgeoning (B), Piercing (P), or Slashing (S). Please pay attention to which type of damage your weapons cause: it makes a difference in game play when dealing with damage resistant creatures.

If you say "I attack" I will assume you are using your weapon most efficiently.

But if you specifically say "I stab the giant with this club," then expect it to be for a less-than-maximum effect.

EXAMPLE: Short swords are piercing weapons. If you try hacking with them, they do some damage, but aren't designed for that. Longswords are made for smashing bones and hacking, if you stab with it surely it will cut you but that's not what it's designed for.
