  • Rolling with Rote with 9-Again

    Can you do both of these things at the same time? Can I make a Rote roll, rerolling all failed dice, while also rolling 9's again... and would it then also do 9's again with the failed dice from the rote?

    Let's say you have a dice pool of 6d 9A Rote

    You roll 2, 5, 7, 8, 9, 10
    * 3 successes
    * 3 fails to Rote reroll
    * 2 again rolls (9&10)

    Rote reroll is 3, 8, 9
    * 2 successes
    * 1 again reroll

    You have 3d again for rerolls
    * 2 from the original and 1 from the Rote.
    * Roll s 4, 5, 8 (1 success)

    Total of 6 successes on 6 dice! Rotes are powerful.

    The 9 and 10 agains would happen after the Rote because the Rote is rerolling failed rolls and none of the 9/10 again would be failed rolls.

    I recommend having extra sets of different colored dice to keep the rotes and agains straight.

    Best regards

      The much simpler method is just rerolling all failed dice first and then rerolling any X Again dice. No need for different coloured dice.
