Only thing I can think of is the size of a two handed for a halfling is likely (not exactly sure of sizes) a longsword for a human, so an Ogre 2 handed weapon be so big a human would have a hard time wielding it.
I need to be at home to see the rulebook, before remember the weapons stats. Not even sure if there are ogre sized great weapons.
I know in D&D they removed the ability for the smaller races to use the larger weapons, but I am still of the mind that they should have the option. So weapons are scaled to the user. For example Sting in Hobbit is actually an elven dagger not a sword. But for a hobbit its a sword.
I seen was a discussion on halflings in the past http://www.fantasyfl...46&efidt=458284
Dont see why its just not easier to just create halfling only weapons. Like you did for the two handed and spear.
Two handed weapons, one handed weapons, dagger/knife, Shortbow, sling, Where size does matter. a halfling firing a shortbow isnt going to hit as hard as a human firing a shortbow, a human shortbow would/could be a halfling longbow in any case. All I do when thinking of halflings is think of a 9 year old child and what they could do with that weapon. So for a human sized Crossbow, I can see them firing it if it was loaded but getting thrown backwards, and there be no way to reload it unless it had a windup loader mechanism and even then take 2 turns.
All you need work out DR and CR of each weapon. Just reduce the DR by 1, should be enough.
Gunpowder weapons, are different. The knockback etc. I think maybe only the pistol would be possible, who would make a specialised handgun just for a halfling?
Are goblins meant to be the same size of halflings? Do they use the same weapons?
Sorry just thinking out loud. Think I would just go with the make halfling only weapons.
Dont think its needed to stunt their stats over what they already have, I have met small people with absurd strength, may not be as strong as an absurbly strong human, but could be equal to a normal human.
You right in that I cannot see how it be possible for a halfling to walk around in full plate, that be very heavy for their frameset. Cause the thickness would have to be the same, just in a smaller size, but it would be heavier to their frame than a human wearing their plate due to the weight reduction not being proportional. ( Hope that makes sense)
So had a look at the weapons. Not sure on how to do ranged though. Went for reduce DR by 2 keep cr and other effects the same.
dagger 2 /3/ fast
hand weapon 3 /3
great weapon 5 /2 /2-handed
spear 3/ 2 /fast (+1 dmg 2 - handed)
