Hey I was playing BTB and I hired the Cathayan Merchant and he recently got the Stone Cutter Skill.
Me and Joker2and53 were reading it and had questions on how it worked.
1. If I sell 5 Wyrd Stone what happens? Do I get the bonus or penality on 1 stone or all 5 stones? If I get the bonus on all 5 stones do I roll 5d6 and each shard gets the bonus or penalty separately or 1d6 to determine the bonus/penalty for all the stones?
2. If I roll a penalty can I choose to not sell the shards or sell fewer of them, and if so can I sell them later and try to refine them again?
I figure that you would roll separately for each stone, and you would not be able to choose to not sell and attempt refine them again. I would declare the number of shards I was selling then roll. So for example I would declare I was selling 5 shards with 12 guy that would be 80 gold, then I would roll to determine the bonus and/or penalty from the Stone Cutter skill. If I rolled 1,2,4,5,6 Then I would 80 + 7d6 -4d6.
I also wonder when I am calculating gold amounts can I cancel +1d6 with -1d6, or do I have to roll them?
This would come-up with the haggle skill as well if you are buying items that have a variable cost.
