silent_bob Posted September 25, 2014 Report Share Posted September 25, 2014 Hello, Why do most animals only get half their damage bonus on bite attacks? The jaws are usually the most powerful muscles in the body and many of these animals, wolves, lions, tigers, etc... are walking jaws. BRP page 331 states: Generally, a creature’s claw attack will do 1D6+db, and a bite or horn will do 1D3+db, unless the natural weapon is poorly- or well-suited for its form of attack, which case the damage attack will be higher or lower. Which seems to say that wolves, lions and tigers should get their full DB when biting. P.S. the alligator gets full DB with it's bite, so the rules seems inconsistent.
