For those of you curious about the probability curve of 2d6 vs 1d6+1d8.
Obviously success is more likely. But when pursuing an appetite the d8 will be greater than the d6 60% of the time – which means complications gallor.
Another interesting note is that the d6+d8 is much better for achieving success when checks are made at -2 or -1. And while it is always better to have a d6+d8 for achieving success, the difference in probability of success diminishes as your bonuses increase.
