Serious Injury

Courtesy of The Judges Mind

If your player suffers a BLUE result on a FEAT and suffers a serious injury, and you are feeling wicked, get them to roll on this table.

Then the judge either choses which part of the hero was injured (if it seems obvious) or rolls on the Targetting Table to see what part was affected. And remember, a permanent injury is not an excuse to make a new character... just ask one-eyed Nick Fury, blind Daredevil, or wheelchair bound Professor Xavier.
