Wizards are horrible freaks

Strike a diabolical bargain in order to cast any spell you know (even exceeding allowed spells per day), but save versus Spell or permanently lose 1 point of Charisma.

Face these consequences if your Charisma falls too low:

Charisma ScoreConsequence
3Everyone treats you with open disgust.
2Strangers run from you.
1Strangers try to kill you on sight.
0Humanity lost. Turn your character sheet over to the Referee, you monster.

1-9 with 2d6

I read a thread about Dave Arneson's First Fantasy Campaign right before I went to bed, and this is the first think that popped into my head when I woke up.

On a d6, assume that a roll of 1-2 = 1, 3-4 = 2, and 5-6 = 3.  Roll 2d6, and multiply. This gives a flat result of 1-9.

EDIT: As pointed out in the comments, this is not flat at all. That's what I get for posting while half asleep. As Dallas M on G+ pointed out, 3 * (1d3 - 1) + (1d3 - 1) + 1 produces the desired results. And his further formulation is even better:

Start with range 1-9.
Roll 1d3: that chooses one of the subranges 1-3, 4-6 or 7-9.
Roll 1d3: that chooses a result in the chosen subrange.
