PostSubject: Performing an action   Sat Sep 19, 2009 10:50 am

Now, there is something called a dice pool. A dice pool is a total number of dice (d10 only) that you roll to perform an action against the difficulty specified by the storyteller (which won’t be known to you). Every action takes both attribute and ability/combat to be performed. Now, if you want to perform two or more actions in one round it requires to split your pool which means that you take out 1 die for the first action, 2 dice for the second, 3 for the third etc. It is your choice wether you’ll split your actions or not, but keep in mind – luck is not always at your side.

However, I didn’t want to bother you with examples and explanations. The best way to learn is while you play. So, when you want to perform an action that requires rolling, describe your action and wait for the storyteller’s response and further instructions. Please make sure to download the Dice Roller in Important downloads. Wink
