A Terminology Update
In a previous post, we discussed “Criticals” and “Fumbles“. A successful roll that is also a double (e.g. 11, 22) was said to be a “Critical”, leading to additional benefits. Conversely, a failed roll that is also a double (e.g. 99, 00) was designated a “Fumble” and something had gone badly wrong.
Whilst drafting the Hack100 rules, I’ve attempted to keep the terminology as simple, clear and jargon-free as possible. Therefore, with this in mind, I’ve decided to rename Criticals as “Major Successes” and Fumbles as “Major Failures“. I’ll use these terms moving forward, and update the compiled rules for the next release.
