I have always been in favour of higher is positive, lower is negative. If I’m writing a particular ‘modern’ or experimental mechanism I will write it to cater for this.

Like repiqueone I also like sixes on a dice to be important. This transcends wargaming as practically all family board games use a D6 and there is an awareness in the population at large of the importance of sixes. This is an important point to bear in mind if trying to encourage new blood into the hobby with your rules.
