i like the 2d6-7 much better lol, very VERY simple
just one question, would negative numbers be in the opposite direction or would it stay at zero. if it stays at zero i would make it 7-2d6 instead, which would reward higher rolls
saltine runner thanks you for reading this post, and is sorry for his ramblings.

negative numbers scatter towards you: -4" AWAY from you = 4" TOWARDS you

BS2=1"less scatter (2:2=1)
BS4=2"less scatter (4:2=2)
BS6=3"less scatter (6:2=3)
etc.
Yep, I know and that's what I put. It's BS/2, so

BS1 = 1/2 = 0" less scatter
BS2 = 2/2 = 1" less scatter
BS3 = 3/2 = 1" less scatter
BS4 = 4/2 = 2" less scatter
BS5 = 5/2 = 2" less scatter
BS6 = 6/2 = 3" less scatter
etc...

Sorry, I think the way I formatted it before made it a bit confusing
