        Highlander IIC (Standard) #2 (401st Provisional Trinary) takes 5 damage to LA (critical).

I'm not sure that was reported right.  Shouldn't a roll of 12 be a blown-off result?

Optional rules from TacOps, "Advanced Determining Critical Hits".  Slightly different table, with 15+ being blown off limb, and modifiers based on attack damage value.
