Would a roll-under system that uses 2d12 for its rolls make sense?

>> No.40432804

>>40432490
yes.

As a DM I normally let people get away with what they roll, taking pity on people who consistently roll 6's and whatnot.

But if one character in a party has a statline like that, it feels a little hard to balance, at least at early levels. If it's a high level campaign, base stats matter a bit less.

If someone rolled something like that, I'd ask them if they'd be willing to reroll and if they would want to use that statline in a solo adventure.
