Hey so would an OTC just be a regular melee weapon with a supernatural D20?

No. The OTC transcends anything as simple as an extra die here or there. The OTC is the archetypal example of a Heroic Weapon (6.4: Heroic Weapons).

It's my secret dream that Brikwars gets Mike into legal trouble, resulting in the legal disclaimer getting read aloud in court.

Mike, found a small error in the Creatures section. According to 10.1, only full dice are allowed for use when it comes to Skill, but the Professor Monkeyhead example mentions him having a 1d6+2 Skill die.

Also true.

We're talking average rolls here. With bonus dice, 1d10 usually comes out to about 6 damage. 1d6 by itself is usually 4. 1d8 comes out to about 5. By that logic, 1d6(4) + 2 = 6 = 1d10.

2d6 comes out to 8, and subtracting 2 also gives you a 6 average.

Id10 comes out to a 5.920 average, 1d6 4.200.

I'm changing the conversions though, since critfails and bonus dice have been growing in importance as this edition develops.

The d6 equivalent for a d10 will be 1d6+2. 2d6-2 only critfailed 1/36 times, which is not enough for my satisfaction.

The d6 equivalent for a d12 will be you don't get a d6 equivalent for a d12. If you're not gamer enough to have fancy dice, then the d12 is too good for you.

You make a compelling argument. Instead, how about this: 1d12 = 1d6x2. Critfails on a 1, only +1 bonus die on a 6.

So the results are

FAIL at 16% , 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 +1d6

I think a d12 would be preferred.
