Flipped tolerance in Encounters

The unique One Ring rules set invites tinkering and secondary creation. Whilst The One Ring works brilliantly as written, we provide this forum for those who want to make their own home-brewed versions of the rules. Note that none of these should be taken as 'official'.

I have been using the flipped Tolerance for a few sessions now and admit that it does appear to be a better system. The only difference I make is that I base the initial tolerance on local standing of the person doing the introduction with a +1 modifier for valour/wisdom (as appropriate) values of 4 or better. This makes circumstance modifiers a little more important (such as the negative for one character always insisting on turning up with his feck-off great boar spear and intimidating anyone that would suggest for example that he leave it outside during the funeral service) and where there are different local standings gives a reason for different characters to step up.
Personally speaking I prefer it when 4-5 skill checks is going to the limit. Cuts down a little on waffle (depending how many beers into the session we are) and encourages the use of hope as every roll counts.
