Right. The Critical is +1d12 damage and the option to boost that. Open ended amounts of damage! :shock:

You are very welcome!
On page 82 of the 4th printing under Crit Table I there is a double asterisk note that says that a PC with battle rage may expend points of Personality or Intelligence to add +1d12 to damage. Then on Crit Table III the very first result (0 or less) says the foe is hit for +1d12 damage and shows the double asterisk. Does that mean for that particular result you need to spend the 1 pt of Pers. or Int. to get the +1d12 or you get the +1d12 and if you spend a point you get an additional +1d12? I think you get the +1d12 with the result and just need to spend the point(s) if you want additional damage.
You get +1d12 damage, and can spend Personality or Intelligence to increase that. Spending 4 points would give a total of 5d12 extra damage (initial +1d12, plus four increases).

No new questions today! I'm giving everyone a break. Thanks for confirming the additional damage question!

If anyone is reviewing the kits (as I'm calling them) I just added the dwarf. Still need to add cleric spells and complete the 0-level kit, elf and wizard. I think they will be handy to have printed out for table use when I am done. I also have to order one of those DEAD stamps. We were just talking about that here in the forum and then a few days later they started selling them right from the website. Pretty cool.

Have a nice weekend!

Here's the Character Creation kit. Please let me know what you think! ... sp=sharing
