I think I found a misprint in the MM effects table. Result 00 says to roll 4d20 twice. I'm pretty sure this is supposed to be 5d20.


I think that "Roll again twice, but instead of rolling d%, roll 4d20 modified by the wizard’s Luck adjustment (in increments of 10%)" is intended; however, I'll check with Joseph to be sure. There are places in the book where patterns are intentionally broken, and ambiguities are maintained. This may be one of them. Of course, you are free to adjust as you see fit. If you feel that 00 should be better than 99, then perhaps change it to 4d20 + 20; this way you shift the mean out of the "No Effect" zone. I'll respond back here once I get an answer.

@jon_lollard, here is Joseph's response regarding 4d20, "It’s deliberate. It’s just a weird result…after all, it’s on a table about weird magic." With that being said, don't forget the rulebook's first admonition, "The judge is always right. Let the rules bend to you, not the other way around."
