The Storm of Insurrection
Although we all know the standard critical hit rules, I have decided for another idea to vastly overcomplicate things.
Whenever a critical hit occurs, instead of rolling a d20 attack roll to confirm, we will be using a d% to determine whether the attack results in a critical hit or not. Then the result will be scaled and bonus damage determined (in terms of number of d12s).
|Crit Table||Bonus Damage|
|19 or less||0|
Weapons have a modifier that improves their performance on the critical bonus damage chart. The standard modifier per weapon is dependent on the craftsmanship of the weapon.
A ‘crit threat’ is simply a chance to roll on the crit table above. Defenders also receive bonuses to their ‘fortification rating’ (which hinders crits, sneak attacks, and point-blank shots).
