Relavant Size and Penalties/Bonuses

#1 Postby Gammon23 » Fri Oct 26, 2012 8:55 pm

A pixie is a small creature which means it gets a + 2 to fighting and shooting against creatures larger than it, while conversely larger creatures would be at minus 2 to hit it. A dragon being huge sized takes a -4 penalty to hit creatures smaller than it,while creatures smaller than it get a + 4 bonus to hit it. So if said pixie and dragon were to confront each other, their attacks would be adjusted so as to be at +6 and -6 respectively?[/img]

Yep, much like the examples of the pixies (Small) and elephants (Large) in the book who have a +4/-4 modifier to each other.
