Also, one of the 3d6 is a different color, and that's your Drama Die, which gets used in certain skill challenges ("if you succeed, add your drama die to the success pool, and if you can get the success pool to 10, you win the challenge").
Ugh. That's similar to the Fragged Empire mechanic. The only thing wrong with that game. I do love the Expanse though...
"What's the point of watching out for assassins?" Floyt grouched. "The underhanded bastards are always sneaking up on us anyways."
