a bit off topic, but i use the following for wild dice usually

if its a 1 the following happens

re roll it. comes up a 1, complication
comes up 2 or 3, subtract it and higest
4,5,6 nothign happens, add the 1 normally.


I tend to do it as:
1-5 subtract it and the highest
6 complication

or, alternatively, ignore it.

Mind you, I enjoy when things go wrong, it's where you actually have to do some quick, in-character thinking to get around your situation... and every character will react differently. (it should also be noted that I am cursed with die rolls and am frequently the person with the reduced roll or complication... I'm speaking less hypothetically than usual on this topic)

English isn't Noc's first language. I would imagine he meant explode, for which I can think of several reasons why one might.

Sorry if it seemed like I was trying to insult noc's skill with the English language; that was definitely not my intent. I just read "emplode" and read it phonetically without thinking of replacing the M with an X. Exploding would make a lot more sense, but would still be very, very rare (think of the lawsuits!). The only exception to that rarity being jury-rigged blasters (not modified, jury-rigged a la Cracken's).

Np, Mattias but The baster manufacturing companies can probably afford to silence anyone thinking of suing them. Either that or keep an incident quiet. Also check out spec forces guide for blaster manitanace.

Blasters are pretty finicky pieces of equipment Razz

Remember, Star Wars technology is pretty crappy, despite being space tech... and the Star Wars universe is a gritty one. Things seem to rarely work as they should; everything seems prone to malfunction.
