Good Hits & Bad Misses

Suggested Price $0.99

UPDATED NOTE (1/11/19):  This accessory has undergone a complete overhaul.

I will cover all 13 types of 5th Edition damage in this accessory. Please note that these are intended for animated targets so things like Bludgeoning and Force are consolidated to a single table because a hammer to a creature's chest could have the same consequences as casting Force against a target. But Force wouldn't necessarily crush a wooden chest the way a hammer could.

I have included a single table for the bad misses (critical fumbles) and it has been revised a lot from the previous version. The major revision to the Critical Fumbles table is the removal of the Martyrdom effect. A 100 on the Fumbles table used to result in Instant Death and even though the chances are incredibly slight at 0.05% (5 times in 10,000 rolls) it seemed punitive and unfair to leave it in.

I have removed the Damage versus Animals table altogether. "Animals" is not a great catchall category for nonhumanoids and a DM can adjust any result as befits the situation (a creature without eyes wouldn't be blinded by an acid attack). A separate table for animals was simply cumbersome and unnecessary.

I like the ideas behind this. We DM's have the ability to adapt and introduce new rules to our games. I could see myself adpating parts of this to fit my style. I might let the player choose between a special result or the extra damage. I realize [...]

This doesn't even follow the flow of 5th edition material. The charts are extremely harsh and most effects are impossible to overcome unless you're a high level character with a cleric on hand. The fumble chart contained herein is just plain silly. Non [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
