Hi,

one of my players noticed that teamwork reduces your chances of success:

Example:

Two Players have a dice pool of 5 each.

Teamwork:

The supporting Player adds only his success to the dice pool. Therefore the the dice pool is now (very likely) below 10.

Normal Roll:

Everyone tries the roll on itβs own. All 10 dice still have a chance of success.

From that point of view you reduce your chances of success in teamwork, but you increase you chances of an exceptional success, because the teamwork dice pool is usually larger.

β

Questions:

1) Did I miss something?

2) How do you handle teamwork as a Storyteller? Do you let you Players chose whether they want to use teamwork? Do you have guidelines for those rolls in your group?
