Critical failures, when people rolled natural 1
« on: August 26, 2015, 02:42:28 AM »
I don't think this needs much more explaining...


Catherine laughed at her partymembers one by one attempt to reach the treasure at the bottom of the pitfall trap, surrounded by pointy metal stakes. One by one they failed to negotiate the climb in their armour and were badly bruised if they were lucky when they landed atop of the spikes. Their expensive white armours caught most of the spike's tips, but of course, one could not expect to not feel some discomfort after such an ordeal.

Escorting the harmed lot outside, she made plans for a new attempt to negotiate a different section of the caves.

I think the few people who have a disarm action can ask for gold to join a dungeon expedition? :-)

Well these were all the people interested in doing a dungeon at all, and the only one with a disarm trap action had been killed the round before by a random plunder action because the player didn't respond within the hour.

If I had time to re-balance dungeons, I would probably make monsters more dangerous and traps less.

No, Audovera didn't have a disarm action. Rhea gained it after being killed by the trap.
