The D&D Thirty Day Challenge, Day 5: Favorite Die or Dice

Plain and simple. This guy...

I don't use critical hit or miss charts. We, meaning my players and I (because if it's good for the players then it is good for the monsters as well) roll this die and narrate some kind of heroic attack on a critical hit or dismal failure on a critical miss, incorporating a complication with the body part that this is rolled on this die. The results are quite fun. Results can be anything from a hurt foot that slows movement to a full on cleaving off of a body part, based on an eyeballing of the damage roll total. I love letting the players describe their own critical hits. They generally are not so fond of describing their fumbles, however. So, I'll handle that for them.
