P. 439 is aimed specifically at being Unskilled in Fight, not R&C.
It seems strange one would handle the math differently, though. A versus test is a versus test, isn’t it?
doh! Totally correct.
If you’re comparing two tests to see who got higher, you double the successes of the skilled participant.
If you’re subtracting one participant’s successes from another, you halve the successes of the unskilled participant.
Is that right?
