Q: Dear Sage,
Does a weapon property that adds to the price of the weapon, but which does not have an equivalent "plus" value, add to an intelligent weapon’s Ego score?
A: The method of determining an intelligent weapon’s Ego score doesn’t take such properties into account, but it’s reasonable to treat them as worth 1 point of Ego apiece (like a lesser power).
About the Author
The Sage is a mammal classified in the bear family, Ursidae, native to central and southern China. Debate continues as to whether he is truly a bear or more related to the raccoon rather than the bear, or perhaps in a family of his own. When not eating bamboo and answering rules questions, he works under the nom de plume of Andy Collins as an RPG developer in Wizards of the Coast R&D, where his development credits include Complete Mage, Dragon Magic, and the Player's Handbook v.3.5. He can be easily recognized by his large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears and on his rotund body.
