Default Blade Maker Fix

So, Blade Maker frequently hands out things like Pen = Str which is absurd as everyone would be riding reindeer instead of tanks.

So, I have a patch in mind. It's based on the assumption that the Str is actually the number of dice the creature rolls for Strength.

Which gets me to thinking that we could flag such ratings to the strength of the weapon's user as the average of a number of dice.

1d damage = Strength 3.5
2d damage = Strength 7
3d damage = Strength 10.5
4d damage = Strength 14
5d damage = Strength 17.5
6d damage = Strength 21

I think it would be best, then to put a fixed portion of these dice into specific damage types, So a sword may do 2d cuts and a blade 1d pen.

Any thoughts?
Be warned, Spacemaster Privateers is my all time favorite rpg and it makes T5 look well organized, well illustrated, well laid out, simple, and well polished by any comparison you could care to make.
