What are your thoughts on changing Initiative to the Int modifier? I’ve seen this done as a homerule, sounds kinda interesting because it raises Int need and makes it less of a dump stat. Thoughts? I kind of wish we had done it that way in 5e, to make the stat more useful and to get across the idea that mental speed is more useful than physical speed in that specific case.

I tend to disagree how smart you are has little to do with how awhere you are and the ability and speed to react to danger.. that being said wisdom could give you an edge as it is based on past experiences knowing that in similar cases things happened a certain way… Intelligents tell you it’s raining, but Wisdom tells you to seek shelter and you Dex would let to react to that knowledge and give to the swiftness to do so
