Whether blessed by the gods or simply born lucky, some creatures seem to live charmed lives. They are the fortune-blessed, able to beat the odds time and time again.
Fortune-blessed creatures look like normal specimens of their kinds, but many exhibit an attitude of near-foolish overconfidence. Fortune-blessed creatures tend to be risk-takers, and they frequently act without thinking. More often than not, however, this same impulsive nature gets them out of whatever trouble it gets them into.
“Fortune-Blessed” is an acquired or inherited template that can be added to any creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature). A fortune-blessed creature uses all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.
Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +1.
Special Attacks: A fortune-blessed creature retains all the base creature’s special attacks and gains those described here.
The critical threat range of each of a fortune-blessed creature’s attacks doubles. The doubling follows the standard rules for doubling critical ranges and does not stack with other doubling effects, such as keen edge or the Improved Critical feat.
Special Qualities: A fortune-blessed creature retains all the base creature’s special qualities and gains those described here.
