Title: Dex Modifier for Finesse Weapons
Post by: kwiknic on May 23, 2017, 10:19:44 AM
In DND 5e, there are certain weapons with the Finesse Property; dagger, rapier, whip, short-sword, etc.  With finesse weapons, the dexterity modifier can be used for hit and damage rolls rather than strength.  Would that be possible for Arctic?  This would give a little incentive to play the fighter classes a different way rather than just using strength based races to wield the biggest weapon.  I know there are already perks to having high dex for bash and parry, but good bonuses to damage could be nice, too.  It could also change the thief dynamic a little, right?

Is this already a thing?
