[quote="zebuleon"]Warchylde, then the problem arises "when does it matter"
at what point does the dragon dice kick in? How do you know what should have the chance of succeeding better than normal? I mean when I'm baking a cake is there a chance for me to do better than just succeed? or when I need to pick a lock? or convince a merchant to buy my goods? the list goes on. Degrees of success really don't matter for almost anything you can think of. but then they can also really matter for the same amount.
I think that comes in with what was said earlier, its based on the GM, you convince some one that your not a thief ... okay Dragon Dice roll may say you do it well, the GM may say that becouse of this number (whatever) he is keeping a close eye on you, doesnt REALY trust you, or what have you. It comes down to the old rule, a game is only as good as G.O.D. (Games Operations Directer)
