Surprisingly, the only real difference between darts and throwing axes are an almost insignificant difference in damage and a huge weight difference. Darts do 1d4 compared to the 1d6 that throwing axes offer, but throwing axes are 10 times as heavy which limits their viability as a primary weapon. And that difference is negligible if you take strength bonus into account. I'm pretty sure you can't cast keen on throwing axes, so them being slashing weapons doesn't offer much either.
I used to always carry a stack of Pyrtechonite throwing axes on Hardragh though, but at some point I got that Shadons Trapster bow or something and the difference was just ridiculous so I pawned them all. And that was before the new training ability with bows.

Big thanks to Dezza for what was quite an enriching quest and experience. Paranoia, mixed with the occasional dread and the sweet little moments in between when things were actually starting to look up.

I figure the advantage of having so many dwarves in the movie, is that Jackson can't use each of them for comic relief, like he did with Gimli.
I looked up the release date and apparently there will be two movies. Which seems kind of a stretch considering what happens in the novel.

Google nwn wiki quarterstaff is quicker.
"Some NWN manuals and documentation incorrectly list the quarterstaff as a double-sided weapon. It is a large weapon."
Adding new custom weapons to a probably nearly full item pallete is not a smart thing to do. Especially, considering how often the current custom weapons are used.
Only ever seen Farros use one consistently, I think it was the falchion.
A light source on your person actually gives a penalty to hide checks, mechanically. If you remove all light sources, you'll find that ultravision actually does slightly enhance the visibility of dark area's. It's like a very low light source without the penalty to hide checks.
