● 1, you fail at a cost.
● 2, you fail.
● 3, you fail with an advantage.
● 4, you succeed at a cost.
● 5, you succeed.
● 6, you succeed with an advantage.
Costs are setbacks, threats, and complications. Advantages are benefits, coincidences, and stray bits of good luck. Keep in mind that the core question of the roll is about getting what you want. A cost should never take your success away. Likewise, an advantage should never just give you the thing that you were rolling for in the first place. Always discuss the nature of the costs and advantages you receive with the group, and come to a consensus.
