    Another feature I'm working on... Custom crit and fumble tables! You can use the buttons on the char sheet or NPC record to roll, or it will auto-roll based on your attack roll if that option is enabled. The NPC sheet is on the left, and the char sheet dialog box (linked from Attacks header on Actions tab) is on the right:

    Custom crit and fumble tables, awesome! I can't wait to add in the Umerica Explosive and firearm tables. Once again you are going above and beyond. Thank you.

    So I'd be able to create Star Crawl classic crit tables?!!

    Yes, crits and fumbles will auto-roll from tables, so anything that can be a rollable table can be a crit or fumble table. Nice, huh...

    I am working on the chat messaging for spell results. I decided to separate the casting table message from the roll message, and I created separate messages for the manifestation and mercurial magic effect. I'm still deciding on the colors, which I pulled from Stefan Poag's space van art. I'm leaning towards failure = red, success = green, manifestation = pink, and mercurial magic = blue. Don't ask why my cleric has a mercurial magic effect, he's just special...

    I also changed the prepared (or more accurately, lost) button for spells since the checkbox was pretty small, unexciting, and maybe a little confusing.

    Planning to hit the test channel by Tue Dec 7. I am trying to finish auto-rolls for spell misfire and corruption, but that might have to wait.

    Actually, I was just reviewing the corruption section, and this little tidbit could throw a wrench in my idea to automate misfire and corruption rolls:

    Some results will further direct the player to roll on one of the corruption tables: minor, major, or greater. If this is required, the roll is 1d10 minus the spell’s level plus the wizard’s Luck modifier.

    I'm sure it's not impossible, but rolling a 1 on a spell check can result in misfire, corruption, patron taint or some combination of these, which seems very complicated. I was going to create a "fumble" table for each spell and then link the other tables to that, but you can't pass the modifiers along that way. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to share. Otherwise, I'm going to let this incubate for now...
