The Elder Scrolls - Fate Core RPG
Tally Dice is a shorthand name for rolling a variable number of Fate Dice, but instead of summing up pluses and minuses, you count the number of lines on the die faces. A plus symbol (+) consists of 2 lines, hence counts as a 2. A minus symbol [-] consists of 1 line, therefor counts as a 1. The empty side is a 0 as usual.
This method of tallying your Fate Dice has the advantage of producing a peak probability of resulting in the number of Tally Dice you roll, with a minimum of 0, and a maximum of double the number of dice. So if you want some randomness, but centered around a specific number, roll that number of Tally Dice.
