Critical Overkill

Crits are awesome, but it does feel wasted when you roll a natural 20 on an injured mook that is barely managing to stand upright.   

Kinda.

On the other hand, dealing 40 points of damage to a goblin barely clinging to life is rather satisfying. It’s better than dealing minimum damage to a minion struggling to hold its organs inside, dropping it with a sad whimper of a blow. And it’s much, much preferred to missing it outright, and having this mangled, battered critter somehow dodge your epic hero’s best blows.
