One will be chosen at random.

A doorway that I run through in the night
Relax child, you were there
But only didn't realize and you were scared
It's a place where you will learn
To face your fears, retrace the years
And ride the whims of your mind

Did a bunch of bug fixes. More chance now of interesting things popping up on weapons!

SIZE 5 WEAPONS ((+4 to Base DC))
Weapon size 5 weapons always get a mastercraft bonus of damage, AC, massive crit, or damage bonus of some sort
Diremace
Doubleheadedaxe
Twobladedsword
Bastardsword
Dwarvenwaraxe
Rapier
Longbow
Heavycrossbow
Katana
^ this is concerning me.

What exactly does the italics mean?

If a Katana is crafted and is flawed, or “normal successful” (not mastercrafted), will it still get the implied extra mastercraft bonus like the italics says?

Here’s the other issue: I crafted a Katana, using Silver and a potion of fire breath (supposed to add +1 Fire Damage). I succeeded, and actually made a masterwork sword. But, the only bonus to damage at all was the +1 Fire Damage that it got from the potion of Fire breath...
Was my Katana supposed to also get either: “bonus of damage, AC, massive crit, or damage bonus of some sort”, as well? Because it didn’t...
UNLESS the engine considered the +1 Fire damage as the “auto” MC-bonus??

Hmmmmm

Pretty sure only the two handers actually get a bonus like that, but will check the code.

Even Ace says his only cost 460xp and I'd bet it was not a short sword

Ace's was an ALFA spear, which is low on the scale.

The bigger the weapons.. I.e. Short Sword VS. Katana.. Katana will cost more xp.. ACE said his +1 weapon cost him 460 xp with +1 elemental damage. That's what Kal's should have cost.

Short swords are a better weapon mathematically than ALFA spears however.

Nah,

I suspect it is in the weapon value. That short sword is 20 gp (so 0 to dc). Short spear is probably 20 sp (so -5 to dc).

Xp cost is based off DC.

Case solved. You're welcome.

I see an alchemical adjustment of +3, what were you trying to forge and what exactly is the the issue?
