Failed rolls

Post by Superion »

The text reads that a failed check "equal to or greater than" a certain number means X. For example, versus DC20 if a resistance check result is 15, that is considered one degree of failure and a result of 10 would be two degrees of failure. But what if the result was 17? Would that also be one degree of failure? The text seems to ignore the space between failing a roll by one to four points. Very confusing :?:

Up to 5 is one degree of failure, more than 5 and up to 10 is two, and so and so forth.

Kyoko: "What's a hot pepper gonna do to a magic-y vine?"
Skullmageddon: "No, a literal ghost pepper. They're the ghosts of peppers prematurely eaten."
Kyoko: "This town is so weird."

FWIW, 2E had this issue with the first degree of failure, where failure by 1-4 was a Bruised or Injured, and 5-10 was stunned. Fortunately, that was one of the few things 3E fixed.
