Asked and answered.

So, the question is if a character with an effective HT score of 16+ rolls an 18, does this fall under the "1 or 2" margin or would this be considered a critical failure which would result in death (since a Critical Failure should always result in something bad happening)? If we can ignore Critical Failures here, then a character with an effective HT score of 18+ would never suffer from the HT checks (to stay alive) at -HP, effectively gaining a part of the Unkillable advantage.

Politicians are the easiest to operate on. There's no guts, no heart, no balls, no brains, and no spine. Plus, the head and the *** are interchangeable.
