@mattcolville hey Matt I have a question if one of your PCs wanted to cut off a limb of their opponent in battle how would you handle that as far as rolls and rulings?

I'd let the player know it's easy to do, they just need to reduce their opponent to 0 hp and the limb of their choice will go flying off. https://t.co/8Xkrf8tqGO

I am usually of the mind that telling them “Oh! If you’d like to introduce that kind of thing into the game, sure! Take an attack at a higher difficulty/AC. Just remember: enemies can now aim for YOUR limbs too” handles the topic well. If they want that danger, then so be it. 😉
