I did it once, in a home game. It was that character's defining moment, really. He's a Cyberpapal character with no magic, no miracles, and no cyberwear. He was the owner of a charity thrift store before the invasion. Just a normal guy with a good eye for merchandise (find
is his tag skill), a good head for business (lots of Leadership perks), and who knows his way around an eclectic store's shelves (Wealthy perk, good streetwise
. . . basically the group's "equipment guy").
Anyway, the team had taken refuge in a London department store from a huge Viking raid, and we were supposed to make a find
roll in order to see how well we could scrape together the different contents of the store, in order to erect makeshift barricades before the impending attack. I joked around with the other players before I rolled, saying "Oh, I GOT this! Philippe knows his way around a store, for sure."
And then I made the roll: 20, 10, 20, 12. Natural Glory! Whoohoo!
So I played it up and was all like, "You there! Go get all the metal racks you can carry from the clothing department. You! There'll be vats of grease in the cafeteria kitchen we can use to slow them down. Swing by housewares to get containers for it, if you need. You! Look for firearms, ammo, and potential melee weapons from sporting goods. Now go, go, go!"
I know that random chance is random, but sometimes it also happens to really, really work out. And I love it when it does.
