    Elves get bonuses with bows and longswords.
    Dwarves get bonuses with axes and hammers.
    Half-Orcs get bonuses with something (maybe clubs?).
    Halflings get bonuses with daggers and short swords.
    Half-Giants get bonuses with two handed swords.
    Trolls get bonuses for using their claws.  (I really like the idea of trolls using what nature gave them)
    Gnome get bonuses with nothing, I mean they're gnomes for cryin out loud.
    Avariel - I don't know.

    But you get the idea.

    Course to do this, the weapons have to be accurately cast as weapon types.  Taul-Maril, the second most famous bow of all, is a dagger :-).

      Bleh, you wanna review all the weapons, be my guest. Can't expect me to know about FR rubbish. I did some 900 weapons, I'm bound to have made more errors than that one.
      Gnomes are cool, let's not pester them any more than we have to. Up those caster bonusses somewhat.
      Avariel need something yeah. Wings that burn everytime you miss a save are worthless. Think of something.

      Anyhow, great idea.

      Now what race gets stuck with the nunchaku and the sap and the bostick and the blowgun? :)
