Hey, I'm a noob to BRP but already a big fan of the system.
I haven't played it yet but am planning on GMing soon as the others in my group are just players...
Anyway I have a question about opposing skill rolls.
In the golden book there is an example of a character using hide verses another using spot. It reads that the hiding character rolls a success and the spotter rolls a special success. That the hiders success reduces the spotters special success to a normal success even though the spotter rolled a better success rate.
Is this an error? Seems to me the special success should reduce the hiders success to a fail...
I would love some examples of why this is the case, if you please?
I'm pulling my hair trying to figure it all out.
Thanks in advance!
