    I’m just going to focus on the idea of ‘I don’t want people to have to do math’
    Is one dice being subtracted from the other or are they being added together then subtracted from something else?
    If the low is being subtracted from the high all that is happening is that you are making dice roll values be between 0-5 instead of 1-6 but doing some maths in the middle. Looking at this part of the mechanic with no knowledge of the whole situation it seems an irrelevant action.
    If they are being added together would using a d12 be easier?
    I’m unclear on how manipulating two dice in this situation would be much different from manipulating one.
    Sorry if I’ve read the question the wrong way and my thoughts aren’t helpful
