The Paxton Gambit
Step 1: Look at your skill you are using. The level of the skill is how many dice is in your pool.
Step 2: Determine if you want to add Emergency Dice. ED’s are added to the dice already available. A maximum of 5 Emergency Dice can be added to a single roll.
Step 3: Roll your total dice pool against the target difficulty. This difficulty may or may not be given to you prior to the roll. Note that each time you roll a 6 beyond the first that this adds +1 to the total.
Step 4: Apply any bonuses or penalties. This affects the final result.
