thank you for the PEACH, I'll work on the tables to make them more clear.

also, yeah, i can do math for some idiotic and unkown reason hence the tables

edit: the tables makeover:

before:

SpoilerTable 1:

{table=head]Save result(Y)|Adjustment to paranoia

Y>=(25-n*5) |1+n

20<Y<25| +1

25<=Y<=29 | 0

Y>=25+n*5 | -n

Nat 1 | Adjustment(Y)+1

Nat 20 | Adjustment(Y)-1

[/table]

Table 2

{table=head]Save result(Y)|Fort save DC

Y>=(DC-n*5)|20+n*3

20<Y<25|22

25<=Y<=29|20

Y>=25+n*5|20-n*2

Nat 1|20+n*5

Nat 20|No fort save necessary, -1 burden

[/table]

Table 3

{table=head]Save result(Y)|effects

Fail by 10 or more| -2 con (drain)

Fail by 5 or more| -2 str (drain)

Fail by less then 5|10 HP drain

Pass by less then 5|10 damage

Pass by 10 or more|nothing

Nat 1 |Save result 2 on 1 mental stat (random)

Nat 20|Recuperation*

[/table]

after:

SpoilerTable 1:

{table=head]Save result(Y)|Adjustment to paranoia

fail by 5 or more | +2*

fail by less then 5 | +1

pass by less then 5 | 0

pass by 5 or more | -1**

Nat 1 | Adjustment(Y)+1

Nat 20 | Adjustment(Y)-1

[/table]

*+1 for every 5 below the DC

** an additional -1 for every 5 above the DC

for critical failure/success, the bonuses are respectively increased/decreased by 1

Table 2

{table=head]Save result(Y)|Fort save DC

fail by 5 or more|20+1*

fail by less then 5|22

pass by less then 5|20

pass by more then 5|20-2**

Nat 1|20+5*

Nat 20|No fort save necessary, -1 burden

[/table]

*for every 5 you failed the DC by

**for every 5 you passed the DC by

Table 3

{table=head]Save result(Y)|effects

Fail by 10 or more| -2 con (drain)

Fail by 5 or more| -2 str (drain)

Fail by less then 5|10 HP drain

Pass by less then 5|10 damage

Pass by 10 or more|nothing

Nat 1 |Save result 2 on 1 mental stat (random)

Nat 20|Recuperation*

[/table]

I know it's still not something a toddler could understand (unless ofcourse you have a frighteningly smart toddler), but it is easier to handle now... I think...

Almagesto, I wrote it as a kind of supplement to FCII: Tyrants of the Nine Hells
