Rokugan: Shadow Rising
MISHAPSWhen making a Skill, Trait, Ring, or Spell Casting Roll and more than half of the rolled dice result in 1’s, a Mishap occurs. This means something bad happened to really screw things up. It could be that outside forces intervened or simply that the character fouled up whatever he was trying to accomplish so horribly that he made things worse. Keep in mind that it is possible to have a Mishap and still succeed at the roll. Sometimes too much success can be bad (e.g., stabbing through your enemy and your ally behind him). The exact results of Mishaps are typically in the hands of the GM.
