Is it possible to edit and upgrade an existing special named magic item, more specifically, a weapon. If so, how do I do it?

For example. I have a bloodthirst dagger. I want to add an additional +1 to the weapon and add Returning. I'm having difficulty finding the method to make that happen.

To be clear upgrading a specific weapon is houserule territory hence the reason why HL does not directly support it.

The main way is to use the editor and create your new totally custom weapon. This is the best way to get 100% control.

The next is I have an adjustment in the Community Pack that can give additional pluses to a specific weapon. I can't give "item powers" through a adjustment so you are left with just adding a note.

Install the Community Pack. Turn on "ShadowChemosh Adjustments". The on the Adjust tab add the adjustment "Equipment, Weapon Enhancement". That can be used to increase the magical plus of any weapon.

I'm trying to use the editor, but it's not letting me copy the base item then modify it in the editor. Do I have to refill every field on my own just to get to what is already in the database?

Correct. You have to manually copy over each setting one at time.

This is built this way so that it is "possible" to do copies of individual things but very hard to copy a whole book. Once the data is in a .user file you could give it to anyone in the world that has a copy of HL and they can use it.

But LW still wanted to provide a means, albeit one that takes some work, to make changes to individual Things if you wish.
