What damage dice does a whip have ?
A ranged weapon ? How does that work ? What range does it have ?

I'd advocate taking the stats from nwn1, alternatively taking some inspiration from DnD.

https://nwn.fandom.com/wiki/Whip

https://www.dandwiki.com/wiki/5e_SRD:Whip

Damage Type: Slashing
Damage: 1d2 or 1d4
Size: Small
Proficiency: Exotic

In terms of range I would treat them as any other melee weapon, no need to complicate things. In order to balance their poor damage performance I would some add something flavourful to all whips, following NWN1 and DnD's example. Personally, I prefer the added bonus feat disarm.

1d2 Damage, 20/x2. They seem to attack from a slight range, probably 20-30~ feet. At-least 2-3 normal hitboxes away from the target.

That is as it has been implemented on Haven and Sigil anywho.

I like them for rogues on Sigil. They let you make your sneak attacks from behind a more tanky party member on late-HiPS builds.

I'm adding them. Also thinking about heavy picks and some double sided weapons.

Yesss!!

A Scourge is a whip with a blade on the end, it might be possible to do that by adding Slashing damage to a regular whip. (Unless the art team wants to do a new model!)

Nota bene that on Sigil, at least when I last played there years ago, whips weren't finessable. Maybe this can be changed here... Otherwise, yay. Their ranged nature is what makes them special.
