8/8 FREE, PROTECTED
Errg, I wish these were in color. Which die is the gray die? Why does it matter whether you roll the black or white die? I believe the intention is to add the roll of 1d6 (red) the the lower of the two gray or white/black. Confirm?
The gray die is the gray die. The black or white die referenced in the rule is the one you selected for your defensive play call. You are correct as to the intention.
