Could information be counted as supplies for a skill roll?
I was watching a Sean Nittner video of a Torchbearer session; the characters were looking for tracks on a mountainside and one of them, the hobbit, had been talking with someone earlier who had told him stories of the creatures which had attacked him and killed his sons. So when it came to the test, hunter, I think, the hobbit’s player suggested that he had prior knowledge that he could use to help the hunter test.
This isn’t a skill, a trait or an instinct, it’s information used like supplies. This suggests that information might be valued in terms of dice, as in “you have 2D of information about these creatures, do you want to use 1D now, or both?”
Does this sound reasonable, or am I just talking from the bottom of the bottle of red wine sitting opposite me?
