Okay, but nowhere on the page you mentioned does it say I use the character skill points for the check factor.  As someone who has never played Troika  before, how was I supposed to know that???

Hi Futuremc002,

Having taken a look I can see that what might help new players in the future is an example perhaps but in section 2.2 p32 Advanced Skills it does say that the "Advanced skill number given in the background plus the characters base skill yields the character's skill total."

Followed by section 2.2.1 which explains the use of skills to pass both roll under and roll versus for actions in the game.

As per this image I am sharing, all that is says is that you can use advanced skills to test a roll.   That still does not clearly outright tell me how to roll for that test.  All mechanics should be  explicitly detailed step by step.
