I do not approve.
Proficiency is a nice flat bonus. I’d rather have a reliable bonus, than a random risk-reward one.
Maybe if a player wanted, they could opt for the die roll rather than the flat bonus, for a singular instance where proficiency applies.

I’ll consider it. I am a fan of not having flat bonuses so that there is more risk involved in the things we do, and it allows for those who are proficient in something to sometimes “goof up” (a roll of 1) and sometimes excel (a higher roll). This is a similar change I proposed for the Barbarian’s rage die, or even the defense roll. I just happened upon it in the forums. Perhaps it could be something like HP rolls, where you take the average or the die roll. We will see!
