A critical success has a one in five chance of occurring. The easiest way of keeping track of critical successes (or failures) is to a) check whether the roll was a success of failure and b) check whether the digit die shows either “5″ or “0″. If this is the case, the roll is a critical. By using this die-reading method the player need not refer to a table which saves time.
