    I agree that I also like "ostensibly" useless object, but ones which CAN be useful in the right circumstances. I gave out a pillow that a magic user could easily detect, though he didn't know its nature, so they kept it and traded it around and different people used it each night and eventually...

    Looking good, I'll be interested to see how something like this works from scratch, start to finish. Actually giving a little info on each step or how you decide what to include or start would be helpful to some, I imagine. Like for me, I can do this too, come up with, maybe randomly, a basic...

    Interesting. I'm not sure how to even start considering the "odds" on this type of thing. I suspect anything deliberately generated is likely, at least more likely than chance, to have at least slight bias, both on the part of the GM and Players, though I don't know if there is often enough...

    When you say 2d6, do you mean pool (each individual die is its own result) or summed (2+3=5)? I presume you're talking about dice pools since the rest of your question seems to lean that way. Here is the thing on individual dice rolled in a pool. They each are their own individual objects with...

    Well that's a given, all those variables you mention would assume to be relatively even or consistent. And obviously most trials are done in any experiment using in the hundreds or sometimes thousands because probability does seem to "pool" in certain threshholds, and smaller trials (of say 300...

    I am also not a math whiz and never had a physics or probability or any classes that would be helpful in this example, but I think comparing a coin flip to a die roll is perhaps a flawed analogy because one is binomial and the other has a larger set of results. As you provided, probability is...

    For simplicity, I feel you can't beat a small handful of differences, like Light (leather), Medium (mail or scale), Heavy (plate and mail) and maybe Full (plated armor), with only significant differences of multiple armor ratings in difference (2, 5, 7 and 9 for example). I do agree there are...

    Hi there Cassie, and welcome to Pen and Paper Games! That was a great intro thread and you sound like someone that's easygoing person that also has a very clear idea of what you want in gaming, and who has a good number of different games under your belt, which is terrific! Good work on the post! ...

    I wish I had that problem, where I accidentally made rules lite games. All my stuff keeps getting away from me with scope-creep and self-bloating. What I want to see or not see if a bit vague. That's like asking "What is your favorite solid object?" with no other criteria. In context of what?...

    I'd like to take this opportunity to say I think this would be a good time to reconsider and change the criteria of any possibly future "cons" (if those are even still something desired) being required to be on any one site or format. Really it's just the "put all your eggs in one basket"...
