How do you handle skill checks?

This subforum is for discussion of the Iron Falcon Rules for Classic Fantasy Role-Playing. Maybe someday they'll have their own forum, but for now I'm keeping the discussion here.

And there is always the "Is this reasonable?" option. If it is, it happens.

When I have no clue, I roll a 1d6. 1-3 is in the players favor, 4-6 ain't. Angry Monk was kind enough to send me a d6 with two yeses, two no's, and a yes-but and no-but.

He's a stand-up guy!
That's really interesting. I might make some custom dice eventually like that. Yes + No + Yes, And... + No, And... + Yes, But... + No, But...
That's pretty powerful all on its own!

We even have a virtual rollable chart of that dice for our roll20 game (or just use 1-2 = YES, 3 = Yes, But, 4 = No, but, 4-5 NO!

Lately I've been using a single stat to roll over. The formula is 17 minus level. 19 minua level seemed far to harsh. The roll is 1d20 +stat bonus. So a first level super tough fighter must roll 16 or higher.
