Grue Posted March 16, 2018 Report Share Posted March 16, 2018 Is there a secret failure rate or some other factor? With my current playthru I haven't used the action before and phemed up Dialectic to a score of 22 (via Logic plus with a number of Flawless phemes pushing up CoS to somewhere in the +40% range) on a character with an Intelligence of 21. Save scumming until I finally got a success (beyond just a point of stress for the trouble) with that ability took 5 reloads to see if it would ever pop. Is there something I'm missing about the ability pushing success rates down or is there a secret global modifier of some sort? Considering the uber high checks for the adventure to gain access to the Sphinx, the stress cost, and the check, all things being equal if it's a secret failure modifier in play, that seems too damn high for 4 skill steps (3 of them random...and given it's more of a midgame to lategame ability it is also likely a SS or two will be assigned to a skill you already have at max)... or am I missing something?
