Dark Pretense

Welcome to Dark Pretense!

Where the truth is a lie. Or is it?

Hello, and welcome to our campaign page. I am one of the DMs, Anthony Frost, and the one who organized this page together. Thank you for your interest in the campaign.

I’d like to start with a bit of rules discussion. We (meaning Nick Naslund and I) have played a game of 5th edition and greatly enjoyed a few things that come standard to that edition. But we really like the feel of pathfinder, so we decided to play using the Pathfinder RPG rules but include those things from Dnd 5e.

The first is the free weapon finesse. If a character uses a light weapon, they can choose to use Dexterity instead of strength for attack and damage rolls.

The second is that critical hits don’t need to be confirmed. If you roll a 20 you score a crit. Just roll damage afterward. Weapon threat ranges will be unaffected.

The third change is split movement. You can use a full round action to move some of your total move range, perform a standard action such as an attack, then move the rest of your movement.

Also we will be using an inspiration type system, where players are rewarded for role playing and saying more than simply “I swing my axe and attack the orc.” The more descriptive, the more heroic, the more daring the action, the higher chance for one of us to say, “you earned a reroll,” or something to that effect.
