The Death of Raises

Y'know, I had this whole week off whether I wanted it or not. And I was going to finish up Chapter 4 and move on to revising the Disciplines so I'd have the basis for a playtesting Quickstart document...

But I kept stalling. And a little rule idea kept nagging at me. I realized Hachigoku needed to take another step away from its inspiration.

No more Raises. Now, instead of monkeying with the Target Number of rolls, you Focus your dice, voluntarily giving up dice for bonus Effects. There are still difficulty bonuses and penalties to dice and other dice modifiers...

But if you want to do the really cool stuff you have to risk your dice. Or your Honor. I like it.
