Hacking Houses (part 3)

In Houses of the Blooded, characters get a set number of dice for Invoking and Tagging, 3 and 2 respectively. For the Amber-ish hack I’ve already decided that the number of dice that a player can get for Invoking a devotion is equal to its rank.

For Tagging, I’m thinking that a player can get half of the Tagged character’s rank, rounded up. So, if I Tag Edward’s relationship with his mother in a  contest in which trust matters (because, dude, everyone knows how sneaky Rebmans are) I would get 3 extra dice [5/2=2.5 rounded up to 3].

    I think you will find that folks have enough difficulty with tagging and invoking without adding another layer of difficulty.

    You really think the math would be a problem? Hmm.

    I could probably design the character sheet with boxes for the numbers. That way they would only need to be figured when a number changed.
