Halfling sling staffs do 1d6/1d8 damage (small/medium). Halfling rope-shot do 1d4/1d6. In both of their descriptions (as well as in the racial description for halflings) it says that halfings treat these weapons as martial weapons. What does that mean?
I know martial weapons in general tend to be better than non-martial weapons, and do more damage, but how does this apply to these?
