A thug has left a ample high defensive opening.

Critical Hit! studded leather cestus bounces off of a thug's right knee at an odd angle, leaving him almost unharmed. studded leather cestus comes in fast and hard on a thug's left thigh, leaving behind a nasty bone bruise!

A bronze cestus is not something you can knock away.
[Success: 12, Roll: 70] You slide your grip toward the butt of your spear and
direct a heavy chop at a gladiator! Critical Hit! a gladiator falls to him
knees, quivering, as blood flows from him head!


The typos can really ruin a good Critt.
Still an awesome one though.

This one actually made me cringe:

A thug screams!
A thug is stunned.
[Success: 5, Roll: 85] Without stopping your oak quarterstave with smooth bronze caps's spinning motion, you chop down at a thug, and hit! Critical Hit! Severe shot to the ribs is accompanied by a cracking sound!
You are no longer busy.

[Success: 5, Roll: 99] Rising from your kneeling position, you make a quick upward stabbing motion at a thug with your boison cestus! Critical Hit! a thug teeters from a solid strike to his forehead.
ups high
[Success: 5, Roll: 99] You bob down and dart forward at a thug, spinning both hands upwards in a series of rapid, upward body shots! He suffers a deep puncture to his left shoulder. Critical Hit! a thug winces as his wrist is pierced by your thrust. a thug winces as a flesh wound is opened on his shoulder.
[Success: 5, Roll: 71] With both arms extended, you spin in place, striking at a thug with the boison cestus on each hand! Critical Hit! Your boison cestus slices into a thug. a thug steps backward, clutching his waist, as blood begins to trickle. He suffers a deep cut to his waist. Poor follow-through yields little.
Shifting his grip on his retalq-tipped spear, Joshawa sweeps at a thug's feet, knocking him down!
A thug is no longer stunned.

[Success: 5, Roll: 84] You kneel down, pulling the twirling circle of your hair whip around you before spinning it out of control and raking a gladiator! Critical Hit! hair whip bounces harshly off a gladiator's shin, revealing bone! He suffers a shallow cut to his left shin.


Not a broken bone like all the other crits of the day, but hey. It was the first time I saw my whip reach bone. Pretty proud.

Haven't gotten this one in awhile:

[Success: 8, Roll: 82] You extend both arms outwards, whirling your retalq gladius about as your entire body spins, and cut a vicious slash across a rogue. Critical Hit! The attack hits precisely on a rogue's elbow, shattering it! The force of your blow knocks a rogue down!

Melina turns her body sideways and uses the momentum to slam her elbow into a rough-edged seafarer! Critical Hit! Melina's strike hammers a rough-edged seafarer's arm, snapping it like a twig!

A rough-edged seafarer winces at a pain in his arm, dropping a sharpened bronze knife.

A rough-edged seafarer wields a sharpened bronze knife.

A rough-edged seafarer winces at a pain in his arm, dropping a sharpened bronze knife.

A rough-edged seafarer wields a sharpened bronze knife.
