Attack: Fumble/Crit Tables Off (default), Fumble and Crit, Fumble or Crit When an attack roll is a natural 1 or 20 (i.e. fumble or crit), this option determines whether to roll on a special fumble or critical table automatically after the attack roll. The special table must be named "Fumble" or "Critical" (respectively), and listed in the campaign tables list. A Default Fumble and Critical Hit Tables data module is provided with FG as an example.

If set to Random, then a random value will be chosen based on the Hit Die field in the NPC record.
