Glossary Terms


critical hit

A hit that strikes a vital area and deals extra damage. Critical hits occur when the attacker rolls a natural 20 on the attack roll (when the d20 comes up 20). A character who scores a critical hit deals double its normal damage. If a character can somehow score a critical hit on a roll of less than 20, that critical hit also counts as an automatic hit.

If the attack deals bonus damage (such as with the Cunning Attack special ability), then a critical hit doubles the base damage but not the bonus damage.
