Stars Without Number Damage
Damage doesn't seem particularly clear to me. I'm aware that you add your Str or Dex to hit with a weapon as appropriate. Once you hit, do you also add your Str or Dex to the damage, as well?
My Dex is 17, for +1. I'm using a Knife, which is a 1d4 Str/Dex weapon. I deal 1d4+1 for my Dex when I stab someone. I can throw my knife for ranged combat, so do I deal 1d4+1 damage at range? When I fire a 1d6 laser pistol, am I doing 1d6+1?
