What I was trying to say is that attempts at augmentation lead to penalties which mean you play it safe and go for smaller edges/bonus. If you fail you get a penalty, my reading of the underlying reason to implement a house rule was that the price of failure compared to the potential benefits wasn't working for folks. My proposal means that ties and marginal/major defeats don't yield a penalty, only the complete defeat. Lankor Mhy seems to have left me to my own devices, sorry but I hope this makes more sense?
