The Fifth World
Equipment and Magic Items
- Crossbows: When using a crossbow (or an arbalest), you automatically add half of your dexterity modifier to the damage rolled; effectively, all crossbows are treated as if you had the Crossbow Sniper feat from the PHBII.
- Keen: The keen magic weapon property and the feat Improved Critical now stack (in a fashion). When someone with Improved Critical is wielding a weapon which is keen, the threat range of the weapon is doubled, and then increased by one. For example, a battleaxe, which has a threat range of only 20, would first be doubled to 19-20 and then increased by one to 18-20. However, a longsword, which has a threat range of 19-20, would first be doubled to a range of 17-20, and then increased by one to 16-20. And finally a weapon, such as a scimitar, that has a range of 18-20 would be doubled to 15-20 and then increased by one to 14-20.
