Plane-dependent Critical Roll Outcomes (5e Variant Rule)

From D&D Wiki

[edit]

The Goal[edit]

To better immerse players in extraplanar travel by changing the outcome of their critical rolls to better fit the environment - as if the strings of fate run different here.

The Critical Roll(s) Effected and the Effect had on them is dependent on the plane you travel. When rolling a critical fail in a Lawful Good plane, for instance, the outcomes of that roll would be far less negative for the players than if they were under the influence of, say, the Nine Hells, an evil plane, which may only see an increase in negativity from critical fail outcomes or perhaps even negated critical success powers. See Planar Mechanics for specific plane's effects on these rolls.

There is no math-based rule but
