Combat narrative (tool)

Many people find it difficult to narrate a combat consistently. I am one of those people.

I often start out well, but after a few rounds I get caught up in the technical part of the combat. Also, in how many ways can I describe my attack with the same weapon, round after round?

For this reason I created these random tables. I have used this tool extensively as a player and as a dungeon master; my Excel version of it, at least. With putting this tool online I have also improved the output for you all.

On a miss
