Yesterday's post was written by a dullard, a real skimbōn. Here's a better OSE/Lamentables/B/X check system. For awesome people, not nerds.
Roll 2d6+ability mod+skill points, aim for 10 or more to succeed. Snake eyes always fail.
Example: Percy searches a room for secret boudoirs. She has 1 skill point for finding doors, but a -1 Wis mod. 2d6+0 rolled, five is the total, and that's a fail.
Yeah, we can do success at a cost on 7~9, rolledbydapocanerds. Geeze.
This system should keep specialists relevant. And it keeps the snake eyes rule for hyper-competent skillsmen.
Traveler uses target 8. Maybe this is a not too hard, not too easy number?----
