089 Interpreting Die Rolls

Interpreting die rolls, or do you use degrees of success with systems that don’t facilitate such a mechanic? Of course there are role-playing game systems like Fantasy Flight Games Star Wars RPG or Powered by the Apocalypse Dungeon World, and even Savage Worlds all have some type of heightened success or failure. But what about the popular d20-based systems where a confirmation of a critical hit is the extent of a degree of success, yet certain lacks any mention of ‘coming close’ or ‘just misses’ via a target number that is usually pretty cut and dry. You either made it or you didn’t.
