This is the first critical chart¸ following the in the Descriptive Combat series.
[The words describing these varying violence of blade injuries may be traumatic to some. Reader discretion advised] Descriptions are not numerical.
Looking for a discriptive critical chart?
' edge cuts into right inner calf severing bone & artery'¸ 'blow shatters the spine causing nerve failure'...
This is intended to be a descriptive combat tool from minor wound to critical descriptions¸ rather than numerical hit point based tool¸ for large blade weapons¸ powers that inflict slicing wounds¸ or natural attacks (not for small blades like daggers couldn't chop a person in half).
This table shows 12 hit locations: head¸ neck¸ thorax¸ upper left arm¸ upper right arm¸ lower left arm¸ lower right arm¸ abdomen¸ upper left leg¸ upper right leg¸ lower left leg¸ and lower right leg. In addition¸ there are 6 degrees of severity of the slashing wounds: minor injury¸ moderate injury¸ serious injury¸ severe injury¸ critical injury¸ and maximal injury to those body parts. In addition to descriptions of the wound¸ some have consequential effects such as becoming blind¸ death¸ or paralysis.
This is a flexible flaw generator that is meant to aid or take the place of a Gamemaster (GM) for adding slicing or slashing wounding descriptions. The wound descriptions are meant to help simulate deadly combat.
A 12x12 table optimized for 1d12 but with results for 1D6¸ 1D20¸ and 3D6 systems is included. A 1d12 location with 1d20 severity roll is suggested.
Its generic enough for any genre.
Included are a total 144 slicing wound descriptions.
