Alright, buckle your seatbelts, cuz we're in for a short but somewhat confusing ride.

Critical failures, or Natural 1's, are of course automatic failures with extreme consequences, ie dropping your sword when you try to attack, stuttering like an idiot and making everyone laugh whilst trying to intimidate, etc.

Critical successes, or natural 20s, DO NOT RESULT IN STUPID SHIT LIKE JUMPING SO HIGH YOU FLY INTO THE STRATOSPHERE. I rage every time I see that stupid post with the player stories of how their DM turned a Nat 20 into something bad. That is NOT what a Nat 20 is. A Nat 20 is a success beyond success. If you're rolling to seduce one woman, you seduce the whole bar. If you're rolling to intimidate, they shit themselves in fear, and worship you as a wrathful god. If you're rolling to attack, you multiply the damage by a critical modifier, as well as automatically hit (in most cases; undead, aberrations, and constructs are different stories).

As for the rolls of 2-19, depending on various things like items that you may be rolling with (scimitars in DnD 3.5 have a critical threat range of 18-20 so rolling an 18 on an attack is a critical, but not necessarily a critical success, it still has to bypass their AC), usually the rolls of 2-19 are just that: rolls. If you roll a 5 for persuade check when you have a modifier of 15, you're going to do better than someone that rolls a 12 with no modifier.

Basically anything in between 1 and 20 falls into just opposing stats/rolls. If you have high modifiers, it becomes less stressful to worry about what you're rolling, because your ranks in the skills can often make your rolls significantly higher even if you roll a 2.

I have a bard who through numerous stupid events now has a Charisma of 40, so she has a +10 modifier to things like singing, intimidating, and diplomacy, not to mention she's level 18 so she has ranks in certain skills that surpass 20, so basically I can roll a 2 and still persuade the average person to do whatever I want.

Hope this clears things up a bit.

I am speaking from a D&D 3.5 perspective:

Natural 1 and Natural 20 are not used for skill checks, only attack rolls (crits and auto-miss, or botch table, depending on your DM) and, I think, saves.
You can pass a skill with a natural 1, given you have enough skill points/items to make up for it, like your bard - you can seduce someone by rolling 1 with your points and skills.

For instance, if you are to jump across a 5 foot gap (jump DC 5 or 10 or something?) and a wizard casts "jump" on you for +10/+20/+30 to that skill, you are not going to fail by rolling a 1. You will get at least 11 on the check.

On the other hand, rolling a natural 20 on a skill can result in a fail, in the event the check DC is ungodly high. You want to swim up a waterfall? DC 70 if I recall, but you do NOT have a 5% chance of having it happen at lv 1. You will need at least +50 to swim.(Unlike the jumping to the moon thing, which, as you mention, is just ridiculous, swimming up a waterfall is actually something you can do, along with running on water (balance, DC 40 with monk running speed), and going through a Prismatic Wall (Escape artist, DC 110 or something)) You can also take 20 on some skills.

Or, if you like sources, Dungeons and Dragons 3.5 players' handbook, page 63:
"To make a skill check, roll 1d20 and add your character’s skill
modifier for that skill. The skill modifier incorporates the character’s
ranks in that skill and the ability modifier for that skill’s key ability,
plus any other miscellaneous modifiers that may apply, including
racial bonuses and armor check penalties. The higher the result, the
better. Unlike with attack rolls and saving throws, a natural roll of
20 on the d20 is not an automatic success, and a natural roll of 1 is
not an automatic failure. "


Cheers, fellow D&D'er.

it's a various degree of success/fail, at 8 I'd say something along the lines of "you run into a little kid and ask him how to get out of the woods, he points north-east sending you on a path which after a while gets pretty steep downhill... and slippery, you start tubmling down, roll for consequences"
It really depends on what the dm will come up with
User avatar #102 - twinnedorphan (10 minutes ago) [-]
for what I have seen this game depends a lot on some strict rules and the imagination of the players.

seems fun, but hard to learn.

It's nice to see players theorizing and extrapolating to unravel the story. It's actually amazing to see how much information has been uncovered like that. But some things just need more explanation. Also it's a japanese game, we could do with some more cutscenes. I mean you spend so many hours on it for a 30 second cutscene at the end.
User avatar #41 - joshuaww (14 hours ago) [-]
What does being a Japanese game have to do with having cutscenes?
User avatar #53 - undeadmaus (1 minute ago) [-]
Japanese games are notorious for their cutscenes.
User avatar #32 - niralius (15 hours ago) [-]
I usually love cutscenes in games, but you know what? Dark Souls I never even thought of cutscenes it had the boss cutscenes every couple of fights and I think thats a perfect amount, had it not been for the lost izalith near the end which seemed rush it would have been an easy 10/10 game.

This was the one were Cartman made friends with Cthulu, right?
User avatar #8 - azurepen (03/04/2015) [-]
There was an entire episode or two featuring Kenny as Mysterion, the hero who couldn't die.

The basic plot was that Kenny's parents attended a cult club meeting, worshiping Cthulu. She was cursed or someshit, and so Kenny's cursed to be reborn, and take the place of his former self every time he dies.

One of my personal favorite eps.

There are alot of people who draw on the site, you could ask them for other tips as well. Any tips that I can give you would be to have a two or more good pencils, a pencil sharpener and an eraser. Whenever you have to erase something, do it carefully and take your time to do it.

When it comes drawing itself you should usually start out with a "skeleton" depending on what you're going to draw. If you're going to draw a human, you'll want to use a skeleton, but you'll usually not need to draw one if the object is 2D.

Just remember that it's not some sort of competition, you're drawing for fun. A good way to get better is, as always, practice. Just draw alot and draw some more.

Seems like a good start. I thank you for this, I hope I get the hang of it eventually and I will probably contact you in the future just to thank you again if the results are promising.
I'll go grab a pencil and start right now and everytime I get bored in class.
User avatar #3 to #2 - europe (04/02/2013) [-]
Best thing would be to draw things that you like, of course.
