Throwing broken swords (with great accuracy)

I threw a couple of broken swords and the results seem a bit strange

"You have no more Broken Swords (1d2) (-2,-4) (j). The Broken Sword (1d2) (-2,-4) hits the Giant white mouse. It was a good hit! The Giant white mouse dies. The Broken Sword disappears."

"You have no more Broken Swords (1d2) {unknown} (j). The Broken Sword (1d2) {unknown} hits the Green worm mass with great accuracy!.
The Green worm mass is unharmed."

The worm mass above even stayed asleep even though it was 'hit'  The broken sword later pseudo-id to average.


Should the first sword have done damage?  Str 16 Dex 13, no other positives or negatives in play (wielding a short bow if it matters)

Should the 2nd sword have stated with great accuracy?

Should the monster of woken up when being hit by zero damage?

Yes, because a good hit adds +5 damage.

Great accuracy means it is a throwing weapon.  (Dagger, spear, throwing axe, etc).  It shouldn't happen for a broken sword.

The THROWING flag increases the to-hit chances, but except for rogues and brigands it does not add any damage.  So it is still possible for it to hit and not do any damage.

Yes, it should have been woken up.  This is fixed.
