comment Can the astrology helping die decrease the chance of success?
Positive expected value does not, by itself, imply that the probability of getting a given result increases. For a silly example, suppose you roll d100: if the result is 100, +1000 successes; otherwise, -1 success. The expectation is positive, but most of the time that die would not be helpful.

Yes, the players have influenced the setting much.

A player can build their character around the setting, or the GM can build the setting around the player characters. Both approaches can work. (And there are other options.)
