Gibberlings and Xvarts doing 12 damage?

(1/1)

PetrusOctavianus:

I don't know if this is mod related or not, but it seems extremely brutal that little runts like Xvarts (Short Swords, Str 9) and Gibberlings should do 12 damage. Last time I saw it a Xvart rolled a 20, but the target had a helm, so unless I have misunderstood something it was not a Critical Hit.
How much damage are they supposed to do according to the official rules? I looked in Near Infinity, but couldn't find any field that deals with damage.

I'm playing Core Rules, with EasyTutu and ScS as the most likely mods to change things.

Miloch:
Damage is per weapon type, so if they have a short sword and average STR, 1d6 I believe.  Maybe the target did not in fact have a helm?  Anything in the helm slot should protect against critical hits (hardcoded).

Galactygon:
Perhaps your difficulty is set to hardest?
