Sword 6: +7 Magic Adjustment (Dexterity bonus movement / surprise)
DRAGON ADVENTURES applies this theory across all weapons and equipment for character rewards at Unearthed Arcana Levels.
As well as regular levels, specific bonuses for each weapon and equipment will be assigned later.
To make the jump to Unearthed Arcana Giant Levels use your own weapon and apply results above to build your own weapon for the game, something that can compete in the higher levels such as a Sword +7 Dexterity Bonus on movement which creates a saving throw of a +7 bonus on Unearthed Arcana Levels plus you basic attack bonus using the magic sword +7.
At the higher Unearthed Arcana levels the sword gains a magical bonus for play at Ability Score 25.
Continuing As Monsters In Advanced Dungeons & Dragons To Level 99 In DRAGON ADVENTURES
In the Advanced Dungeons & Dragons Players Handbook Monster Characters are limited in level.
In the DRAGON ADVENTURES setting using the above Ability Score Adjustment Rules Monster Characters can play up because their equipment list has been update so that it uses the same system as the Second Ability Score Column Adjustment and weapon bonuses.
The monsters weapons and equipment are now balanced to them for example like above, the Half Orc could only use a 12″ Sword + 7 Magic Bonus to gain the higher level.
This gives the character a new weapons and armor balance with new settings for higher levels and size creatures by using new weapon and equipment size combinations that weren’t available for the characters, this allows them to gain the same level advancement as the human characters by using matching strength items that are available in the monster sizes.
Adjustments and new weapon sizes haven’t been completed yet in DRAGON ADVENTURES, but using this guide you can make your own based on it’s basic formula for weapons, then apply to equipment to update your monster character for higher level play in Advanced Dungeons & Dragons on DRAGON ADVENTURES.
REMEMBER, IF A MONSTER CAN’T PLAY IN A PART OF THE STORY BACKGROUND YOU CAN’T USE IT ON THAT PART OF THE ADVENTURE
