Critical Hit "Wound" special effect question


Rules Questions

On page 182 and 183 of the main book it talks about the Wound critical hit special effect. The chart talks about the hit locations and the type of saves they require but I cannot find anything about what the DC of the save is or what the location effect does.

Can anyone help me out please.

See the sidebar on page 181 for the save DC.

The location column on the table does nothing on its own -- it is the effect column that matters.


As far as what the effects do, I'd refer to Conditions on 273-277, and ability damage on 252.

Hmm maybe I am missing it, the wounding locations that you can have are 1-10 (general) no save, so I am guessing nothing happens

11-13 (Eye sensory) Reflex save
14-15 (Leg mobility) Fort save
16-17 (Arm manipulation) Reflex save
18-19 (vital organ) Fort save
20 (Brain) Fort save

So what happens when you get the Brain result or the vital organ result? That is what I am trying to find for this.

In the same table where it lists the chances for each (pg 183), the rightmost column lists the effects. For reference:

Vital Organ: 18-19 Fort save 1d4 Con damage.

Brain: 20 Stunned 1 Round.

It is impossible to avoid rolling a nat 1 forever. The good news is, next roll has a 95% chance of being better! :D
