Recommended Posts

Was just wondering if anyone had made or know of a spredsheet or somesuch going through the skills, from 1 to 100, and showing what would be a fumble/crit/etc for each of them?

Do you mean a simple table, where crit/special/fumble %ages are shown for all the %rolls at all skill-levels?

Or do you mean an active bit of software -- enter a %skill, it tells you what %crit/%special/%success/%fail/%fumble are?

Or have I entirely misunderstood your want, and it's something else entirely?

p 143 of the core rules book, also on the GM screen and in the "gamemster references" booklet for a straight up table of success levels for given skill number

I might be an idiot and have not noticed itm..

But this post got me thinking. Many skills have effects for specialls and crits defined in the rule book. I usualy just wing it because I can't be bothered to look it up (or i forget it's even a thing). Having those effects summarised in a table would make them a lot faster to use.

Nope, you are intelligent enough to know what you do not know and how to find out... asking! Now if only more were this intelligent!

Bravo

This is close to what I say when I train people at work. "there are no stupid questions, but there are stupid answers"

I find this method better than a table:

  1. Look at the value. Let us say 84 for now.
  2. Take the tenth of this number. In this case, around 8.
  3. Double it for the Special. In this case 16.
  4. Halve it for the critical. In this case 4.

Wala, as the french say. It isn't perfect, but I haven't found that to be important.

Taaaa Daaaaaa as the ancient show offey type Praxians used to say. It translates out to Wala I would think, but which tribe is this “French" you speak of? 

Seriously, I have been playing this BRP system since before god invented the dinosaur and for some strange reason I have never seen it expressed that way with that formula. 

BRILLIANT, just friggin brilliant!

WALA indeed!

Think it is written as "Voila"

But then we could not praise any butchering gods in french
