    TBF, one single Sneak Attack is pretty unimpressive against a non-trivial foe. This houserule seems to benefit Rogues if anything.

    That said, I wouldn't use CdG - too guaranteed deadly and with weird incentives like "use a scythe and power attack for the best throat-slitting."

    Maybe:
    Fort save (DC 10 + half level + Dex) or die, else take an extra 3*level damage and Sneak Attack dice are maximized.
