>player critically succeeds on a charisma check>be too autistic to know how the NPC responds
>>76944315>NPC just nervously responds “Y-you too!”
>>76944315Have them be quiet and say "It seems they don't know how to respond"
>>76944368I do, but you can only pull that one so many times
>>76944315"You know what? You seem based."
>>76944474What would be the low fantasy equivalent of calling someone based and redpilled?
>>76944512Shitting yourself and then expecting everyone to think you're a clever duck.
>>76944512"You seem to be based on a solid moral foundation and absolutely red-blooded."
>>76944315>critically succeeds on a charisma checkWhat system anon?
>>76944512>"You're a man of wisdom and valor, though you are certainly unorthodox"

> critically succeedsthis is bait
>>76944315This 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.
>>76944315>critical >skill checklmao no
>>76946282>>76946160Its 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.
>>76944315Spaghetti stream out of his pockets and everybody applauds.
>>76944315>Critical success on a skill check leads to problemsHave you tried playing D&D by the actual rules?
>>76950188>have you tried playing D&DNo, I don't play boring systems with no degrees of success. I just made it normie friendly.
>>76950188>instantly assumes it's DnDhow often do you play, anon?
>>76950367Three 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.
>>76946282>I only know D&D
