1. See Damage Increases by Size to calculate the damage for a weapon larger than Medium or smaller than Small.
2. Weight figures are for Medium weapons. A Small weapon weighs half as much, and a Large weapon weighs twice as much.
3. When two types are given, the weapon is both types if the entry specifies "and", either type (player's choice at time of attack) if the entry specifies "or", or each end of the double weapon is a different type if the entry specifies "/".
4. The hp value given is for Medium armor, weapons, and shields. Divide by 2 for each size category of the item smaller than Medium, or multiply it by 2 for each size category larger than Medium.
A blowstick is an interesting weapon, it look like a sleek club housing a firing mechanism inside. It sadly has a very very limited range. It can either be used as a melee weapon or as a ranged weapon, dealing either bludgeoning in melee or piercing with the projectile. If the wielder possess the Point Blank Shot feat, she does not provoke attacks of opportunity from firing in melee with the blowstick.
Upon striking a foe in melee with a loaded blowstick, the wielder may fire the blowstick as an immediate action.
A blowstick hold a single bullet and can be reloaded as a move action.
