Basic Dice Pool
A basic die pool is a number of dice rolled to check the success or failure of something. Normally this is determined by the number of ‘Hits’ on the roll. A hit is any die that ends with a 5 or a 6 on it.
A draining pool is a dice pool that declines exponentially over time. Normally displayed as #DP-X, where # is the number of dice at the beginning. ‘X’ is the unit of time that passes between separate rolling instances. If there are no hits when rolled, the number of dice decreases by 1, and the pool is rolled again. If at least 1 hit is rolled, nothing happens until a unit of ‘X’ passes, when the pool is rolled once more. Draining pools can not critically succeed or fail.
