Well since Evie brought it up. I did find this Critical fumble table in one of the other Tiny 6 rule books.

Critical Fumble Table
If you ever roll all “1s” on your Test, roll 3d6 and consult the below table:
3: You accidentally harm yourself. Take 1 damage.
4: You drop whatever you are holding due to the pain.
5: You stumble and fall. You must spend an action to stand back up.
6: You accidentally break or ruin a tool you are using or carrying.
7: You accidentally cause a random ally to drop something they’re carrying.
8: You accidentally offend someone you shouldn’t have.
9: You make a mistake and forget your next step in the plan.
10: You’re off balance. The next time you Test, you have disadvantage.
11: You unintentionally mislead someone. Give an NPC or player bad info.
12: You accidentally break a minor law you were unaware of.
13: The equipment was faulty and causes a glitch that causes a random detour.
14: You accidentally misplace 1d6 Gold Coins.
15: You find something that belongs to someone else.
16: You accidentally harm an ally. Deal them 1 damage.
17: The next person you kill wasn’t who you thought they were.
18: You deal yourself 2 damage on accident.

Oh Nooooo!   To the critical list above. LOL Lots in there that we DO NOT Want to happen.

I think we need someone to play Austin for his next two moves (recovery from the fall and attack/ or recovery and run). Bynw or Evie  or even Jerusha. Who wants to play Austin? I certainly do not.

Oh and sorry, I will miss chat today.  I am off to a Christmas Tea and will be back late this evening.  Every one have a good chat and please tell KK Happy Yuletide for me.  Thanks.

LOL, I think the entire point of a Critical Fumble table is that things happen that you don't want to have happen!  But that said, this looks like a list that really only works under combat situations and the like. For instance, when I rolled the double 1 rolls, I was just trying to shapeshift back into my assumed form after briefly showing my true identity to someone. There really wouldn't be any way to realistically incorporate any (or at least most) of these consequences into the story in a way that would make sense. Me failing to shift back into my disguised form is hardly likely to make my ally in that scene (Columcil) drop any object, or cause him harm in some way, and there wasn't any opponent or enemy around during that scene. So using a Critical Fumble table only makes sense if the circumstances of the scene are such that the sort of mishaps on the list can actually happen. I prefer the idea of using an "all ones" roll as meaning you somehow failed badly in what you tried to do, but write the scene to reflect that failure in such a way that it makes sense for that particular situation you were rolling for.

Had a busy weekend, so I'll have to take a look at the game thread to see what I've missed. But I don't mind writing from Austin's POV if needed.
"In necessariis unitas, in non-necessariis libertas, in utrisque caritas."

I have a vocabulary in excess of 75,000 words, and I'm not afraid to use it!
