Default Re: Jobs and critical success/failure

This is an open ended issue because the answer will depend a lot on how your group uses the success outcome. It says that something good happens for you, such as a promotion. So what does a promotion mean? That's up to your group. If it means you get knighted and put in charge of a fief its a big deal and well worth the risk of the negative outcome. If it means nothing because your group doesn't really pay attention to jobs then it might not feel worth the risk and you should get a job with little or no chance of failure. Also, remember that the damage isn't automatic; it happens only if you fail a second saving throw against your best unmodified stat, which is something most people will make most of the time.
