Routine Tests

It’s human nature to see patterns where none exist. It helped hunters and gathers survive in the wilds of the prehistoric savannas. To gamers, this pattern recognition manifests by associating causes to critical hits, and looking for probable causes for abnormal numbers of crits: a favorite die, rolling longer than normal, or the gravitational pull of the moon. If the entire table has a string of good luck, the GM might start to wonder at the cause.
