[Success: 9, Roll: 80] You make a quick stabbing motion at a gladiator with your iron dagger! Critical Hit! You puncture a gladiator's left shoulder, severing muscle.

<enter description here>

His left shoulder is ripped open. His right shoulder is slashed open. His right arm is badly scratched.

A gladiator's left shoulder bleeds freely.

I was amazed when I saw this. It has been about four or five years since I have landed a critical hit like that. I had lost faith in Dexterity and the crit system, now it is alive and well!
