Aggressive Negotiations

I’ve been playing rather than running D&D for a while now. Which is odd. And less fun for me in many ways, not the least being my rolls are garbage. I have terrible luck. I’ve rolled double 1s no less than four times, which should be a once-per-character occurrence. Mostly on attacks, a botched attempt to climb, and a saving throw. But the penalty for failing that severely on a check you can only attempt once could seriously impact a campaign.
