One think I'm wondering about is the difference in the Damage Bonus calculation between RQ6 and BRP. In BRP, a dragon with STR 30 and SIZ 50 has a damage bonus of +4d6. In RQ6 it's only 2d8. I'm curious about the difference.
I'm thinking the reason might be that the two games do damage differently. So a RQ6 dragon who bites you for 1d12+2D8 is still going to do enough damage to wherever it strikes to, at the very least, ruin your day. In fact, few PCs could survive such a chomp (or, at the very least, any limb that gets chomped is gone). The typical BRP dragon is many times stronger and larger and does 11d6 with one chomp. One resultant to the RQ6 dragon still does 7d6 impaling, which will again ruin your day unless you happen to hail from Krypton.
Why is this?
