Possible Adjustment
« on: February 11, 2012, 09:24:17 AM »
The rule stays the same except that in each rolling critical attempt after the first, the total attack bonus is reduced by 1.  So if the attacker first rolls the 19-20, then the first critical confirmation is at his full attack bonus (let's say +10).  The 2nd is at 1 less (+9); the third is at 2 less (+8), etc.  It would stop decreasing when the bonus reaches +0, but if the rolls keep hitting at the +0 bonus, then the rolls continue.  A roll of 20 would continue the rolling regardless.

This continues to allow for the possibility of an awesome attack but reduces the likelihood.

I still like it but I misread it.   I would have it not related to attack bonus.  Just a -1 to the attack roll for each additional rolling critical because as it stands right now it doesn't impact a low level character really at all and that is part of the issue.

That was my intention, a penalty to hit, not to the BAB.

The only thing is I wouldn't create the cap based on attack bonus because it doesn't effect low level people nearly enough which was part of the issues.  I would say use your system but a minimum penalty of -5 or -10 or something like that must be assigned.
