Episode 397: One Sword, Two Sword, Red Sword, Blue Sword

<<FIRST     <PREVIOUS     NEXT>     LATEST>>

Hitting your own weapon is always fun. When running a game, always make sure you have a table of cool results that can happen on critical combat failures that produce various forms of weapon damage.

About the only thing better is the table for hitting yourself.
