I have a large composite long bow. As stated in the damaging objects rules, it has a hardness of 5 and hit points of 10 (medium would have 5).
Now, when I am holding the bow and under the effects of reduce person, its hit points are halfed, so they become 5, and enlarge person would double them to 20. I understand this part. What I do not understand is how I should be tracking damage as the bow changes size?
As my natural size is large, the bow is made to my size for all the cases below, so it starts with 10 hp. In each of the cases a fighter is running upto me and succeeds on a sunder attempt, dealing 6 damage, and with hardness 5 the bow would take 1 point of damage.
Case 1A: Damage to the bow, what would the hit points be when I increase my size by enlarge person? The new max would be 20 hp, so would the remaining hit points be 19?
Case 1B: Damage to the bow, what would the hit points be when I decrease my size by reduce person? The new max would be 5 hp, so would the remaining hit points be 4?
Case 2: I am under the effect of reduce person so the hp is 5. Damage to the bow. The hp becomes 4. What would the hp be when reduce person is ended?
Case 3: I am under the effect of enlarge person, hp 20. Damage to the bow. The hp becomes 19. What would the hp be when enlarge person is ended?
