@ Moreno, no problem, I see where you are coming from. Thinking on it, when I play it's normally the GM who says yes or no to any +1s (so they are not automatic), and the GM might ask for an NFA roll if it's only arguably an advantage.
So, we get...
* a +1 when the GM says "Yes! That's a good idea.",
* maybe a +1 if we pass an NFA test when the GM says "Umm, roll NFA and tell me if you figure out how to make it work for you",
* and no +1 when the GM says "That isn't going to work or get you an advantage."
Would that help any?
(For some groups they'll have a strong sense in the group of the SIS and feel they can objectively judge the +1s. But the key thing is that the answer to the +1 can be "no!".)
Chris, I have the same problem with Wushu, I think. If I get a dice for saying something then it becomes an exercise in saying anything to get the dice.
