And a Goat.


For Second Darkness you must take one campaign trait and either 2 non-combat traits or a single combat trait.


Breath of Life has been renamed to Cure Deadly Wounds. It can now be spontaneously cast like any other cure spell.


Certain weapons now have the “Finesse” property, which allows them use strength or dexterity for rolling to hit.
Examples are:

  • Daggers
  • Elven Curve Blades
  • Rapiers

Other Rules

Death System

Upon reaching 0 hit points, you fall unconscious and begin to bleed out. On each round, you can make a d20 roll. If the roll is over 10, you get a point towards stabilization. If you fail, you get a point towards death. If you accumulate 3 stabilize points, you stabilize and are unconscious. If you accumulate 3 death points, you die. Any healing magic, will automatically stabilize you (although you will be unconscious). Only spells such as Cure Deadly Wounds or similar effect can bring an unconscious character up during the fight.
