Excerpt: 

When a character stands a reasonable chance of failure, event resolution is required to declare a success.

Fraction Columns
This is the core of the fraction column system. Attributes have four fraction column results. These are Full, Half, Quarter and Eighth (or Full, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8). When a player rolls for event resolution, they compare the roll result on a 1d100 to these columns. If the number rolled is equal or lower than the number in a column then the character has passed that column. Fraction columns are used to gauge how well a character has accomplished a task. A Half result is better than a Full, a Quarter result is better than an Half and an Eighth is better than a Quarter.
