    "Hope maybe good shelter and nice people here," mumbles Helgrond to himself as he adjusts his pack's seating on his massive shoulders and lumbers toward the fortified keep, his head drooping slightly in anticipation of rejection from others, even as he tries to reassure himself otherwise.

    I'll make a character so there's one there, and will try to play if you get some signups. Map and all overall setup and threads and such look good. Very prepared. Good job, look forward to it.

    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...

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?...

*chewing on the end of a pencil, a habit so long ago started most times she seems not to notice she's done it, she seems deep in thought or daydreaming, it's hard to tell one from the other* Well I suppose most importantly I'm looking to connect with others for rp and fun. *tapping the pencil against her bottom lip a time or two before bringing it once more to the paper* But mostly I'm looking to find that joy that only rp and gaming can give you. That chance to live, to be, to experience more than what a single world has to offer.
About Me
Biography:
I suppose I'm one of those original gamer types. I prefer the pen and paper form. As much rp as possible, and playing for love of the game. I know it's become a fad now, but I remember when it was seen as uncool and us chick gamers were thought not to exsist. *giggles* I originally started with dnd 2nd edition when I was around twelve. It was over 15 years ago now. I have since played many other games and forms, from cyber punk, to Amber, to Call of Cathulu, a nd many more. I have done the mmorpg, but find it to be more a chore than enjoyment. Little rp or imagination required. However after moving around so much recently I have found I no longer have access to a group. But being a mom of three, I have no time to go out and find one. So here I am introducing myself, hoping I might find the fun of pen and paper games again. Online is welcome too if not mmorpg.
