I'm trying to see how easy it would be to borrow combat rules from 5e to use against unmodified PF monsters, supplementing or replacing the relevant PF rule.
I don't think it'd be all that hard. In fact, I think it'd be very easy to do.
Advantage/Disadvantage is easy to substitute for various situational modifiers.
Relaxing AoO rules to 5E standards is easy enough.
Allowing arcane casters to cast when wearing armor they are proficient with is easy.
Eliminating confirmation rolls on crit threats is easy (but, may result in too many crits with default PF threat ranges and threat range increasers).
The 5E Death and Dying rules would be easy to import.
I think much of the 5E engine could be used unchanged with 3X characters and monsters.
