Good Hits & Bad Misses


UPDATED NOTE (3/23/16):  The charts found within are intended for Player Characters to use.  The critical successes were not designed for NPC usage AGAINST players.  We urge commonsense and DM discretion based on PC level.  One of our very basic tenets of role-playing is that it is the DM's job to keep things fun.

Some Dungeon Masters enjoy allowing their players to describe their natural 20s and they relish in creating clever and, often, painful consequences of their natural 1s.  This document provides useful charts for those that like to let fate decide the outcomes of the good hits and the bad misses.  Within this document you will find convenient charts for player characters whether they are dealing bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage.  You will also find charts for their spectacular failures.  Roll percentiles!

There are 5 different charts depending on the type of weapon being used.  Included in this number is also a critical fumbles chart.  Add spice to your game with this supplement.  Enjoy!

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 [...]

Good fun! As with all things D&D, the DM will need to make sure any results fit the situation. I like that the BEST Good Hits can have consequences for the PCs but it's nothing a party couldn't work around with just a little cleverness or maybe tak [...]

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.
