Can you choose to do less damage on melee attacks?
For example a random fighter can deal 2d6 +9(strength) +2 (Weapon Enhancement) +1 weapon training with his two handed sword.
Can the fighter choose to drop his strength bonus, or weapon training bonus to damage?
Can he choose to do the minimum weapon damage of 2?
Lastly, if this is possible does it affect the attack roll?
Assume non-lethal damage is not an option - Say trying to apply an injury poison without hurting or killing someone, or trying to apply a different on-damage effect. Such as an injury based paralysis.
If one of the aforementioned effects were tied to the weapon itself are there any remaining options to lessen damage --- similar to how spellcasters can lower the caster level of a spell down the the minimum needed to cast that spell?
