Random Encounters — This Is Fine

Welcome to Random Encounters, the blog where we take a popular internet meme, animal video, or the like and turn it into a game rule for Pathfinder or Starfinder.

The world is on fire. Everything is going wrong. But this is fine, or at least it can be in Pathfinder 2nd Edition.


This Is Fine «Feat 7

Prerequisite Toughness
Trigger you receive damage from a critical hit or you critically fail on a basic saving throw

Instead of taking damage immediately, you take persistent damage equal to the amount of damage you would have taken if the attack was only a success or you had only failed on your saving throw instead of critically failed. If the original damage dealt bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage, then the persistent damage is bleed damage, otherwise the persistent damage is the same damage type as the original attack.
