With a critical hit in D&D, wouldn't it make sense that the first die is automatically the maximum value, so then if you get a critical you're guaranteed to do more damage1 than a regular hit? I find it embarassing when I score a crit and do less damage than a standard attack. That just doesn't make sense.

1. Assuming, of course, that you have at least a +1 str modifier.

WoW: The Board Game

World of Warcraft: The Board Game. We were supposed to show up at [livejournal.com profile] jagafeh's place at 9am. [livejournal.com profile] dilph and I didn't arrive until 10am. We started play at 11:30am and had to skip the last quarter of the turns to wrap up at 4pm due to [livejournal.com profile] dilph needing to be at the airport by 5pm. It's a cool game when it's actually your turn, but I spent roughly 2/3rds of the day sitting on my laptop waiting for other people to have their turns. On the plus side, [livejournal.com profile] dilph, [livejournal.com profile] iceleron and myself were playing the Horde and we kicked ass! :D

After hearing Dilph talk about WoW (the computer game), it sounds like a complete waste of time. (Add to that my Addiction flaw which gives me a -10 to Will saves vs any current addiction and there's no way I'm ever touching WoW.) I think I'd much rather spend that time acquiring a useful skill, such as playing guitar. Levelling self up FTW!

In today's D20 Exalted session, Ghost shot the bunny girl, Mira, for scalping his kill; he spoke his mind to a Terrestrial Exalted queen without losing his head for it (or going berserk and killing a bunch of palace guards, for that matter); and he criticalled an Abyssal, killing it, right before it unleashed a nasty area of effect spell on the party.

Yeah...I think I played Ghost true to form today. It's also nice to unleash his first crit of the (admittedly short) campaign on a boss monster.

You know you're not munchkinising when you're spending skill points on craft and profession because "it makes sense for the character". ovO (I've also picked ability scores because they make sense for Ghost, not necessarily because they'd provide the best game benefit.)
