Alex pretty much gave the info.  Ability checks aren't as common as 
say skill checks for sure.  Mostly strength (grapple, breaking 
soemthing) or maybe a Eloquence (carousing, fast talk) kinda thing 
not much else.  I tend to like Crtical rolls though Critical Success 
and Critical Failure.  No matter if youhave 205% chance of success 
the gods may deem the task rude to their eyes and thus a 01 roll will 
be critical failure and that's not good.  So the ranges for S/F Crits 
are up to the ref.
