Storyteller System Difficulty

In the previous edition of WoD, the Storyteller dictated a Target Number which was a number a player needed to roll at or above on his dice in order to generate a Success. The number of successes determines how well the action or task was performed. The standard Target Number in the previous WoD systems was 6, with a sliding scale for difficulty. The Exalted and Trinity systems use a flat target number of 7 for almost all rolls.

Famous quotes containing the words difficulty, storyteller and/or system:

    To treat a “big” subject in the intensely summarized fashion demanded by an evening’s traffic of the stage when the evening, freely clipped at each end, is reduced to two hours and a half, is a feat of which the difficulty looms large.
    Henry James (1843–1916)

    I sat by an eminent Storyteller and Politician who takes half an Ounce in five Seconds, and has mortgaged a pretty Tenement near the Town, meerly [sic] to improve and dung his Brains with this prolifick Powder.
    Richard Steele (1672–1729)

    The professional celebrity, male and female, is the crowning result of the star system of a society that makes a fetish of competition. In America, this system is carried to the point where a man who can knock a small white ball into a series of holes in the ground with more efficiency than anyone else thereby gains social access to the President of the United States.
    C. Wright Mills (1916–1962)
