I really dig the simplicity of this system being a dice chain from d6 -d12. Having each roll be either a failure, setback (which I take to mean a small success w/repercussions) or outright success while  skills have you make those rolls with advantage is streamlined bliss. I’d really like to try this out with my nieces and see what they think. 

Thank you so much! I hope it works out and you all enjoy the system!
