Default Blunt weapons / Item dmg

The artists got the first batch of blunt weapon art done recently and I just finished setting up the first two so they drop in-game (many more to go).

Also figured it was finally time to create a real spreadsheet for calculating / balancing weapon dps progression. Very excited to have that all set up - now I can get real values on everything. Looking back at the old TQ chart, the way I set some parts of it up seem kind of dumb now.

Is it wrong that sexy balancing spreadsheets fill me up a little bit?

Someone who is sexually attracted to spreadsheets what would you even call that? Excellophilliac?

Is blunt damage has a chance to stun the ennemies ?

Not really, so long as by "fill me up a little bit" you actually mean they make you happy that your one step closer to completing a difficult project ...and not some weird-ass fetish were you print out spread sheets and rub them all over yourself!

But but... There's not gonna be dismemberment with blunt weapons?

I vote for making heads EXPLODE insted of cutting neck with blunts. Don't know how the similar thing would work with other body parts but I could totally see blunts crushing heads completely.

Sharp or not, you hit someone with enough force ...it will remove limbs.

And given the absurd levels of strength most of these characters end up with I have to guess that dismemberment is very possible. Hell, if anything dismemberment by war club should be even more gruesome and bloody then being hit by a bladed weapon.
