Quote from: GaerikDoes the Proposed system seem simpler to others, or is it just me? There's less dice counting, I think. In the playtest we had pools of 7 and 8 dice due to grouping a couple of times. Is 1d6+7 easier to deal with than 7d6 vs a TN of 4 to other people?
QuoteOthers have already provided some excellent statistical analysis, so I'll just go with the gut feeling - which says that: o As you stated in the rules, I think, there is something primitively satisfying in rolling a large number of dice vs. just getting a big bonus on one die. o Adding three or more dice is more cognitive effort than counting the successes. o In the new, suggested approach, you somewhat obscure the concept of successes, which I would like to utilize further than just for declaring the winner (see below for this suggestion).
QuoteI have an idea for the damage mechanic, but perhaps it is too influenced by TSOY and DitV. You might also dislike damage as a principle, or have a clear mechanics idea in mind already.
