A recent debate came up regarding how much a raise should be. As I understand it, a raise is always succeeding by 4. So, if you have a TN of 4, the raise is 8, another at 12, etc.

However, some believe that it should be based on the original TN. Toughness and Parry are the source of scrutiny. By this line of thinking, a Toughness of 8 would get a Shaken at 8 and a Wound at 16.

Which is correct? Thanks in advance.

It's a flat 4 points over the TN. As in...

"Every 4 points over what you need for success is called a 'raise.'"
