Some rules have you pass a test or succeed at an action by rolling below a number, some above a number. While I know mathematically the world is agnostic to the difference, I still always prefer to roll a high number. Maybe this is from my D&D days when I started gaming, but I think it may be from childhood games where the dice roll determined how "far" you could move on the gameboard with your Monopoly or Parcheesi piece. Higher numbers were always rewarded in those games. Yet some miniatures rules want you to roll below a number. I think it would be a better world and be easier to move between different games if it were a standard that rolling high was usually better for the roller. What do you think?
