Dice Mechanics

Die Results

6 1 success 1 advantage
5 1 success
4 1 success 1 disadvantage
3 1 failure 1 advantage
2 1 failure
1 1 failure 1 disadvantage

Roll die pool, by default 8d6. One re-roll by default.

Subtract failures from successes. The result is the degree of success or failure.

Subtract disadvantages from advantages. The result is the degree of advantage or disadvantage.

Three of a kind of any number allows the player to take a chit of their choice.

Special Dice

Bonus dice are rolled and re-rolled as normal. After rolling is finished, the player may decide whether or not to use each die in determining their result.

Penalty dice are rolled and re-rolled as normal. After rolling is finished, the GM (or other opponent where relevant) may decide whether or not each die will be included in determining the final result. If both penalty and bonus dice are used in a roll the GM (or other opponent) must decide before the player does.

Challenges

A challenge is a narrative element that is overcome using the mechanics of the game: obstacles, monsters, traps, skill attempts,.. anything which requires a roll of the dice.

Difficulty has three parameters: complexity, danger, and scope. A complex task is one which requires excellent performance (such as from skill) to accomplish. A task with a large scope requires a large number of successes to complete. A dangerous task is one particularly prone to expose the actor to negative consequences.

A task succeeds if the degree of its success exceeds the degree of the task. A task fails otherwise. Each degree of success in excess of the degree of the task contributes to completing the scope.

Chits

Three types of chits: white, red, and blue, in order of increasing value. Red and blue chits can also be used as white chits.

White chits can be used to

Red chits can be used to add an additional die.

Blue chits can be used to gain additional re-rolls.

Moves

Tags

A tag may be applied to a move, whether general, equipment, or powers. A tag should be a descriptor that might sometimes aid and might some hinder the character. For example the "sniper rifle" tag on a rifle might indicate that the rifle is particularly good at long range and particularly poor at close range. Gain a bonus die when the tag applies as a positive and a penalty die when the tag applies as a negative.
