So, playing ST:A we came up with a question we could not answer quickly. Where does one get the value to roll under, to obtain successes from a Focus? Ok, so the rules stipulate, if one rolls under the value of a Focus, say "4", then one obtains two successes. Great, says I, where does one get THAT value? We determined that it was the discipline most closely associated with the Focus was the target. So, turn in your hymnals, err umm rules, to page 130, to the example character sheet for Joal Etahn - To use his Focus of "Psychology" we should use the value for the discipline Science or Medicine, I would say Medicine, since psychology is a branch of medicine. OR, does one use an attribute? Using an attribute seems to be too high a value. So, Joal would have to roll under 3, (His Medicine value) to obtain two successes. Further, if Joal's player rolls over the discipline, but under the target, does he still obtain a single success?
One last thing - since I am certain it says this, somewhere" in the rules - what is the citation?
