I'm just thinking of a situation where I want to sneak past a guard, but the roll only gives me options to take other actions.


Rolling a 3 or 4 wouldn't necessarily mean you'd have to make a "swipe" or a "kill". I envision it as meaning if you rolled too many of them, your sneak failed. If you want to be assured of success, lay down some 1-side Edges. Plus, guards and other such goons would fall neatly into the "Plebe" category, and of course, every guilded knife-fighter is superior by default to Plebes. Sneaking past a Plebe wouldn't normally warrant a check.

Maybe I'm interpreting the rolls too narrowly? Maybe a 4, when sneaking means I went whole hog and dove for cover behind the guard?


Or, if the sneak failed because of the 4, and he sees you when you're right behind him, it could give you the instinctive reaction needed to flick a knife into his throat, and then dip into the shadows before anyone noticed...

OH! And yes, thank you for your generous offer! I'd love for you to help me with charsheet design/layout, but I don't want all your work to go to waste on an idea that will probably go through several new mutations before being anything close to ready. I figure we should put any actual work on ice until the workbench is a little more stable.
