I have a crit table I use for random crit events. The table is recursive and triggers whenever a 20 is rolled, but the default programming in Roll20 also rolls the additional damage roll that's built into the same roll by default. I would prefer to have it just roll on the crit table and remove the additional damage roll.

Is it possible to remove the additional damage roll and have Roll20 just reference the crit table?

    \$\begingroup\$ As written, you question is a bit broad by virtue of, "Anybody have any suggestions." Can you elaborate on what you've tried and your familiarity with Roll20? Do you need the system to still notify when a critical hit occurs? Also, you indicate that you're using the 5e system; does your table only care about critical hits or natural 20's, there are some features that permit crits on 19. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 4, 2018 at 15:44

  • \$\begingroup\$ Sorry, I'm having a hard time phrasing exactly it is that I want. I have a little recursive table macro that triggers a random crit event on natural 20's (only natural 20's) and my players have been confused by the additional damage die that gets auto rolled whenever he/she gets a natural 20. I still want the system to let me know when a natural 20 has been rolled. I've looked through the roll20 settings and it's 100% possible I'm just totally missing something obvious. \$\endgroup\$

In any of the character sheets within Roll20, under the 'Character Sheet Tab' you should see a small settings cog on the right hand side.

Upon clicking that, you should be given various settings options. On the right-hand side box (with the 'NPC' Tick box), there is a small drop down menu titled Auto Damage Roll. When you click this, it allows you to turn on or off the option to automatically roll damage (including critical damage).

Thus when you roll, it will only roll the attack roll. You can then either manually roll the damage, or click the name of the attack (in chat) which will roll the damage for you.

I am unsure if all Roll20 character sheets have this feature, but I know the default ones do.

    \$\begingroup\$ Hi Logan on the right hand box, underneath Whisper Rolls to Gm there is an Option to Auto Roll Damage and Crit, you cna turn this off as it is a drop down menu, however this would affect only the character attached to that sheet. \$\endgroup\$ Sep 4, 2018 at 16:05
