Next entry in the series :
How did someone earn one ? First you had the misfortune to roll a natural 1 on an attack roll, so you know there’s a pretty good chance of a bad outcome to this Critical Miss. But then, to ‘confirm’ the Critical Miss, you throw a natural 20 ! So all is square and your character’s not about to get hit by an attack of opportunity, or find himself flat on his back.
How frequently were they awarded ? Infrequently, seeing as the odds of this specific dice outcome is the same as the ‘Bowling 400’. Yet probably more often than the ‘Bowling 400’…
Who earned this card most often ? Karma didn’t stay in balance for players like us, so those that deserved a break didn’t necessarily cash in.
The “Cards” series of posts recalls the special “trophy” business-cards awarded to players during E.G.’s original D&D v.3.5 game several years ago. This is a weekly post.
