Full Version: Dice pool modifiers for climbing

Major Doom
For SR5, page 134, within the Climbing Table there are the following entries for surfaces:

Slippery or wet -2
Greased or gel-treated -4

If a surface is greased, then it would also be slippery. Would these two modifiers stack, giving a total -6 modifier?

I'd say no, I think one is a "better" version of the other. It's like stacking low-light and total darkness, just doen't work.
I don't have the book to give a RAW quote, unfortunately, but I agree with the logic here. It seems a little silly to take two penalties for what amounts to "less slippery" and "more slippery".
