Not sure if this should go here or in the Gamemaster-section.

No you do not roll it like that.

Thanks for this, it's really cool! It's good to have something semi-concrete to play instead of just rolling Gambling. Also, I think players will enjoy making some decisions while still the characters ...

Thanks guys, lots of good suggestions here. I'm using the RAW scale system, at least for now.
