Hi gang! I received a few compliments for the little system I whipped together for Racing — Thank You So Much!! to those who participated and offered kind words both during and in its aftermath! After puzzling over the rolling mechanics, I think there's a ton of room for storytelling creativity — just keep in mind that a skill of 36 (proficient, max non--QP level in chargen!) results in a skill check against 76, so the chances are weighed heavily in the player's favor when skill checks are involved!

The main thing I'd still really like to see is the ability to add + or - modifiers to these dice rolls; doing that would open up a lot more storytelling possibilities. Sure it's doable regardless, but the hassle and confusion is probably not worth it in a large scene.
