Dice Pools

There are two types of Dice Pools in Summit of Kings (and Swordsfall as a whole). As explained on Page 6, they are split into Positive and Negative Dice Pools.

I highlight this separation to make your dice rolls easier. You won’t be throwing a large amount of dice in the Swordsfall RPG system, so splitting it is just to make it easier to remember what you need to roll.

You’ll always have some number of dice to roll in your Positive Dice Pool, but sometimes your Negative Dice Pool will consist of just a couple of Difficulty Dice and that’s it.

It’s recommended to roll the two pools separately as well. That way you can cut down on the number of dice used to roll, and it makes for a speedier play.
