WOIN Alternate Dice Mechanic D20



I love what I've read about WOIN but, due to nostalgia, I really enjoy that little d20. So I was looking for houserules online and ran across this article about using alternative dice mechanics in WOIN: Alternative Dice Rolling Methods — What's O.L.D. is N.E.W.

Using the d20 method, would I need to make any changes to setting difficulty tasks for magic in O.L.D.? Also, would anyone recommend a way to use the d20 for Supers games since we wouldn't be using the ascending dice pools (d8s, d10s, etc). Any other thoughts about this are also welcome! Thanks!

Well, that was fun

There’s a table on that page which tells you how you would need to adjust the difficulty of tasks. Note that a d20 is not a bell curve like a dice pool is, so the tendency will be to score high or low more often.
