In the original 50 Fathoms book, L'Ollonais' weapon was listed as doing Str+5 damage. When the damage changed in the Explorer's Edition, the guideline at the time was to convert magic weapons by taking the base Damage of the weapon, figure how many "+1" mods it would have under the old system, then add any extra pluses as Damage Bonuses to the weapon. So a +5 cutlass would become a Str+d6+3 damage weapon under Explorer's Edition damage.

However, in the new 50 Fathoms book, L'ollonais' cutlass is listed as a Str+d12 damage weapon. Is this correct? If so, when wouldn't the damage rules also cap his weapon damage at d8, so L'Ollonais would only do 2d8 damage in melee?

"They're more guidelines than actual rules." Wink

In other words, the cutlass does do Str+d12 damage, but it should be (and is or will be) noted that it ignores Strength minimums. There are a couple of other weapons in the book like that as well, and if not already, the update should clarify them all.
