Posted: Fri Jan 02, 2015 9:49 am Post subject: A complete list of "1 on the Trait die" results?
I don't think this counts as "how the rules work", so I'm posting this here...
I tried searching the SWD PDF as many ways as I could, but I can't be sure I got everything.
So if anyone can think of any other standard-SWD situations where rolling a 1 on the Trait die (but not snake-eyes) means something bad happens, please let me know.
I'll re-tabulate everything once the dust settles.
Gambling skill : if cheating, character is caught
Persuasion skill : target's attitude drops by two steps
All Thumbs hindrance : rolling a 1 to use any mechanical or electronic device breaks it
Berserker edge : a 1 on the Fighting die means you hit a random adjacent target
Killer Instinct edge : if the skill die on an opposed roll is a 1, you can reroll it (but must keep the new one)
Chainsaw : a 1 on the Fighting die hits the user
Suppressive fire : a 1 on any target's Spirit die means they take damage
Firing Into Melee / Innocent Bystanders : on a miss, a 1 on the Shooting die (or 2 for full-auto, shotguns) means a random adjacent character IS hit, if the GM decides it's appropriate
AB/Magic : a 1 on the Spellcasting die means you are Shaken
AB/Psionics : a 1 on the Psionics die means you are Shaken
AB/Weird Science : a 1 on the activation die means the device malfunctions
Blind power : if a target rolls a 1 on the Agility die, they are Shaken and fully blind
Teleport power : a 1 on the casting die means the caster is Shaken and also takes 2d6 damage
Natural Healing for Extras : a 1 on the Vigor die means they die
Fear : a 1 on the Spirit die means you roll on the Fright table

Just to clarify, a miss with a 1 (or 1-2) on the Shooting die means a random adjacent character is hit if the GM determines the situation is dramatically appropriate.
A Wild Card who rolls a 1 on their Shooting die but still successfully hits with their Wild Die does not trigger Innocent Bystander. _________________ Clint Black
