Multiple "Close Call" Criticals

Recommended Posts

We had a fight against goblins turn against us last weekend, ending up with a PC incapacitated. But after that they were simply unable to do him any further harm due to their spear's Deadliness of 3. He received maybe a dozen crits but he managed to reduce them to a Close Call every round. His clothes got damaged, then destroyed but he was otherwise fine, he just took calming breaths for 3 rounds until he was able to attack again.

Did we miss something that would have made successive crits worse or was it a correct interpretation of the rules?

Well there is the little matter that any critical strike received while incapacitated also provokes the unconscious condition ;)

So 1st crit while incapacitated would be “damaged clothes AND unconscious”, then the second crit would have had a base severity of 13 (+10 due to unconscious), and that is a bit harder to soak...

Ouch! yes we did forget about that, or assumed it didn't apply to "Close call" strikes that do no real damage, but yes, he should have been dead ten times over.
