    Tales of Critical Fails

    So I think Critical Fails make for some of the best role playing moments, especially when they aren't combat related.

    Here is a screen shot of one from my game tonight.

    At a crucial juncture when the player wanted his character, a pastor, to reassure an NPC with the power of prayer, the juxtaposition couldn't be more ironic or sweet.

    Lol I ruled that the NPC was simply traumatized by the botched effort. And now felt utterly marked.

    What was hilarious is that as the player rolled the dice, I made some ****y comment about making a slip of the tongue and saying "Oh Great Dark One.."

    And he rolled the crit!
