This is why you write up a list of immediate wands, long-term motivations, and ticks/quirks for NPCs that you expect the PCs during your prep. Improvising NPCs is something even neurotypicals are bad at a lot of the time.

Its a way of saying "they achieve the highest number possible in whatever system you're playing". It might not be a crit, but the players still expect to have done pretty well. Replace "critical success" with "degrees of success", you fucking autismos.

Have you tried playing D&D by the actual rules?

No, I don't play boring systems with no degrees of success. I just made it normie friendly.

how often do you play, anon?

>> No.76950572

>>76950367
Three times a week. I shouldn't have jumped to the conclusion, though. That was my bad. I'm just so used to 99% of problems mentioned here being due to people either using D&D for something it's not intended for, or playing it incorrectly by ignoring rules and guidelines from the books.
