My group has just started playing Mutant Chronicles, and we're having a blast. I started with the 2d20 system through the Conan RPG, and I'm hooked now.
One thing I noticed about Conan vs Mutant Chronicles is how you buy extra dice for skill tests. Correct me if I'm wrong, but the only way, per the rules, for PCs to buy dice in MC3 is to add to the Dark Symmetry pool. In Conan, you can use momentum OR doom to do this.
It seems like this method of buying dice adds to the DS pool very quickly in MC3. I've been experimenting with allowing my players the option of using momentum to buy dice, like Conan does. Is there any issues that you can see doing this? Is it the intent for the GM to have a huge amount of DS due to players buying dice? Has anybody else tried something similar to this?
