Re: "Dodge" Skill Question

If I understand the question correctly, here's a simple way to do it..

Normally the checks are something like this:
   if (number(0, 101) < GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_DODGE))

Instead, just use a higher number so the chance is less:
   if (number(0, 501) < GET_SKILL(ch, SKILL_DODGE))
