#5 Roll brain hemisphere stabbed

Zack: Combat in FATAL is a rabbit hole of various nested tables and hit locations and percentages. My personal favorite damage chart, for head stabbing, includes a roll to determine which hemisphere of the brain is struck.

Steve: Since this game is so realistic I wonder if Byron whipped up the schizophrenia rule after reading detailed statistics on the mental illnesses of people stabbed in the brain.

Zack: If FATAL is anything it is well-grounded in scientific fact and rigorous research. And weird VHS sex tapes from Russia.

Steve: Those guys are notorious poisoners. Byron had better be careful or he'll be the one making a Health check at difficulty TH 25.

More WTF, D&D!?
