I was wondering if anyone has the stats for a Grippley (I hope that is spelled correctly) lying around. I know they were in the earlier Monster Manuals, but they are not in MM3.5 1 or 2. I really want to put some grippleys into this game I am writing, but I would like to have a template from which to work with.

Grippleys are these bipedal frog like creatures.

Also, does anyone have a good Crti Miss and possibly even Crit Hit chart for d20, more specificly, d&d3.5? I would really like a nice, simple, possibly humerous, bad stuff can go wrong, Crit Miss table, the Crit Hit table, not so much, do not even know if I want to incorporate one into the game.

Also, I was wondering what other people have played as a 'critical miss'. For me, it is if you roll a 1 on a 'to hit' roll, and then fail a reflex save.

Thank you for your time.

I always did a crit miss like a critical hit. Roll to see if you miss the AC again. If you do..... something REALLY bad happens. Anything from the oppnent gets an attack of oppertunity to your weapon breaks, etc...

Ok, but what if you do make the second hit, do you acctually strike and do damage? and how is that fair when dealing with monsters with an impossible ac to start with, like ac 22 creatures and shit.

its kind of like critical mhits. No you still miss, but you don't critically botch. This is sort of to represent a really good fighter doesn't have a 1/20 chance to fuck up, when they'd most likely not.

It's spelled 'grippli'. Not sure if there is a 3.0+ version out anywhere.

Do you have the stats of the old version?

I'll bet they're in the Monster Manual 3, coming out soon.

That said, it's been converted on ENWorld.

Sir, I could hug you! What a treasure trove of creatures.

I myself have never had made a table or anything regarding crits. I myself go on the fly depending on the circumstance and situation, but I don't go overboard.

As an example, if you have an archer who rolls a one and there are four allies within ten feet of a creature, I then roll a 1d4 to see who get an arrow in the ass, leg or whatever part that is exposed. I do allow the person to tumble if they have the feat and/or do a reflex save. The only reason I write or is because I have had a situation similar to this except a molotox cocktail was thrown. There I only allowed tumble to be used cause there was no way the player would be able to get out of dodge.

There also was a time, and I don't think I'll see this again anytime soon but everyone including the creature being fought rolled a one. Needless to say this was a hilarious moment for me and very fucked up for the players. All in all its really up to you as t how you do it but don't get tooo crazy... unless everyone rolls a one like my game did.

I just go with what the DMG suggests. If a player rolls a 1, its a DC 5 Dex check to avoid something bad.

I do not have one of those, and I do not know anyone who has one. Do you know where I could get a picture or pdf of it?
