Mecha Malfunction Table

This is another chart from the vanished Shigata Ga Nai High site, taken in turn from SJG's Tooniversal Tour Guide. You could update results 15 and 53 to something like, Viewscreen only displays "K-ON!"

Mecha Malfunction Table by Matthew Webber

Based on "The Dreaded ‘Uh Oh, Equipment Failure' Table" in the "Tooniversal Tour Guide" Mektoon section by Rrobert Cross, with some Anime-esque modifications.

Roll on this chart whenever the player rolls a 12. If an attacking character chooses, they can roll on this chart instead of Critical Damage Table.
To roll on this chart, use 2D6, designating one die the "Ones" and another "Tens" and roll like you would roll 2D10 to get a D100 result. (ie, one die rolling a 4, and the other a 3, would yeild a result of 43, or 34.)
