Ability idea: Boring

This minifig (usually wearing a business suit) is completely immune to all critical success rolls: any such roll is simply re-rolled. This is true offensively, and defensively.

I think that should apply to critical failures, too. If someone fails miserably at something, it tends to be entertaining. Also, I don't think you should have to re-roll the dice; any critical successes/failures should just count as regular successes/failures.

I dunno, even boring folk fail spectacularly at things.

But maybe you're right. Anyone else?

I agree with aoffan. He should be immune to critical fails as well, for a couple of reasons.
The first is that it balances the ability out a bit and makes it worth having. The second is that, as aoffan less eloquently stated, failing spectacularly is just too spectacular.
Give a minifig an inch, and he'll murder for a mile.

That doesn't make sense.

Folks who fails spectacularly are not boring at all.

So...~I'm confused~ are they able to fire/throw a grenade on the same turn as generating an explosive, or do they have to wait till the next turn to blow their load?

Since generating an explosive is one action, and throwing it is another, they have to wait until next turn. You only get one action per turn.

Ahhh, I think I got it now. And "full action" means "takes up both one's regular action and move, allowing them to do nothing else but possible free actions/reactions in that round", right?

So does grenadier+multitasking=unlimited explosive spam?

Limited by the number of times you by multitasking, but yeah. Also limited by how willing your opponent is to punch you in the mouth.

At first, I misread this line as:

That's what I get for reading BrikWars forums when barely awake.

Though in all fairness, that is probably what anyone with infinite grenades would be feeling.
