    A few folks have begun submitting downtime with the risk level (or caution level, depending on if you're a glass half-full sort of person or not) split within the same action. That is to say, it looks something like this;

    Action 1: Research toe jam
    Effort: 6 (3 Regular, 3 Cautious)
    SP: etc., etc., etc..

    I don't know where this came from, and there's nothing in the BRB that says you *can't* do it, but I don't want Effort to be split like this. I'm sure you can make an argument (whether a statistical/mathematical argument or a story argument) for doing part of your action recklessly and half of it at a normal level of Risk, but ultimately, I find it needlessly finicky, and, to be blunt, I just don't like it. There's also nothing in the BRB that would indicate that you *can* do it. Or should.

    So I'm just going to consider any Effort split up in this way to be spent at default/"normal" risk levels.


    EDIT: I think I do remember where it came from, and I've liked it less and less the more I encounter it.

    Personally, I would recommend treating them as the lower of the two instead, ie Regular/Risky get treated as Regular, but Regular/Cautious get treated as Cautious.

    Or possibly waiting until next month to enforce this.
