Hi all,

I was reading again the Contested action paragraph on the book and I'm worried I've always ruled it wrongly.

I've always gone for: whoever won the contested roll considered the full amount of successes rolled and not just the difference between his and opponent's ones. But reading again:

"You roll your dice pool and the Storyteller (or

other player) rolls the dice pool for the other party. Whoever

rolls the most successes is the victor. Note that you count

the total number of successes rolled when working out if you

scored an exceptional success — don’t subtract the other party’s successes from yours."

Seems to me that it's apply just if the winner scores at least an exceptional success. While, for any other successes amount, it is supposed to be just the difference between the two rolls.

Did I get it correctly?
