Tri-Stat dX vs. Shadowrun

Posted By on September 16, 2007

So, I looked into the Tri Stat dX system (used in Big Eyes, Small Mouth, amongst other things) and, while interesting, I like Shadowrun better. The main issue is the lack of opposed rolls. In Shadowrun, if I'm trying to smack you, I roll my dice and you roll your dice and whomever gets more successes wins. In Tri Stat, both players would roll against a given target number and whomever beat it by more wins. This is kind of lame.

I think I still prefer Shadowrun.
