@SevenSidedDie I agree, it's fine with me, how can I split the question?

comment Should a character drop his or her weapon when going unconscious?
I'm agree, but it happens to my daughter to fall asleep with her teddy bear, and later in the night I try to remove it and she always resist even if she is deeply sleeping.

another point, why do you say "There's very little point to using math without statistics.", what I'm thinking about uses maths and therefore statistics, isn't?

Thanks @Brian, yes and not. I want the Master to have one (or more) narrative plot(s), with its(their) failures and successes already written, but with the players having the power to change these pre-written events. It's not bidding at all... You, as player, collect points and at a certain moment you use them to change the course of the events, like you have God behind you, blessing your steps. On the other hands, the master have to find out how many points, in positive and in negative, he has to distribute or assign during a test. Normal tests don't needs any check, are already written.

@Naurgul Thanks, this is indeed a good solution, but as @SevenSideDie highlighted it's an existing solution and anyway it slow down the game a bit.
