I hope they give us both options: dice rolls and point pool.
I will defintely go for point pool
I like this idea.
I will probably try dice rolls first, if both were implemented. If only because I'm known as the most unlucky person in my group.
I once had a character who's sole purpose was that he was attentive and noticed things. best Search, Spot, & Listen in the group.
I had to roll better than a 7 (on a d20) to listen in on a conversation on the other side of a wall.
I rolled 15 times, and never once rolled higher than a 5. (By roll 4, the DM was openly saying 'Yeah..I expected you to hear this, and it's actually NEEDED for the plot, so keep rolling')
I don't know what the odds are on never rolling over 5 on a D20, 15 times in a row, but I somehow did it. :P
