Proof-reader and mathematician required

This evening I got Chris to rummage in the distant corners of his roof space to find a Star Wars RPG book with a particular table that I'd promised to loan to astatine210 . When I got the book home, I remembered that this rule book has a particularly fine Murphy's Rule in it.

Wookiees have a special ability called Beserker Rage, Once a Wookiee has gone beserk in combat::
   "A character must made a Moderate Perception roll (with -2D penalty) to calm down once all enemies have clearly been controlled - unconscious, captured, killed or somehow otherwise physically retrained or stopped."

So once you've retrained those pesky stormtroopers as ballet dancers, the Wookiee may calm down.

As a double whammy of Murphyism, the Wookiee has to make a Moderate roll of their Perception ability to succeed in calming down - that's a total of 11-15 scored on their dice roll. This is at a penalty of -2D (2 dice) for being beserk. Wookiees have a maximum possible Perception of 2D+1. Assuming the highest possible Perception ability: (2D+1) - 2D = 1. No Wookiee is ever going to make the necessary score to calm down.
