Attack and Damage Rolls

Fenway5 over at Sword and Shield proposed a damage system that is dependent upon the attack roll.  This applies to human vs. human(sized) targets.

This got me thinking.  What if any attack roll was d20 and d6?  You could roll both dice at once and consult a table.  You'd add all relevant bonuses (for level, STR, magic weapon, etc.) to the d20 roll.  I like AAC, but you could easily change the table to work with your preferred AC system.

Below you will find a mocked up table based upon Fenway5's work.  I've added my own twists (tinkering with the damages a bit and allowing saves for some effects).  I may give this a try during my next game night.

Love that chart Jim! Much easier to use than the mini math pop quiz I originally put together. Kudos!
