                   Critical Hit Table
      Modified by CTAH BYD (C275347 at UMCVMB.BITNET)

We roll a d10 and d6 for combat rolls. On a natural 20 (0) (where the
d6 is a 6, that is a crit. Rolls above 20 have no affect on the crit,
and are not crits unless the base roll is a 20 (0) and 6. A fumble is
a 1 on the d10 and a 1 on the d6.
