    Wow, some people take things way too seriously. I could never torture my dice like that, imagine how poorly they'd roll afterwards?

    Trash it with supplemental material? How can you not like supplemental material?

    This makes me want to roll every dice I have with an excel spreadsheet ready to record and find their averages. Which, I guess, means "yes" we believe in diminishing probability? If you have a record of the last 50 rolls of a dice, and are familiar with the results before rolling, and you feel...

    Does that actually exist? Well... apparently so. Interesting way to adjust the probability of a roll. But after a few bored moments of staring at d20's I think they're built against that type of thing. The 2 and 8 sides are next to the 20. It might be possible to use Dice Control on a...

    Some people have that special dice that most recently rolled a NAT 1, meaning its less likely to roll a 1 again in the future because the odds that it rolls 1 twice are 1/400 right? How true is that, or is it just superstition? This is basically the same as the old "flip a coin three times"...

    Simpler. Basically "an armor by any other name would still add +X Defense, so why do we have a bunch of tables listing various armor names and the one point of difference between them when not naming them would work just as well, save page space in print, and be easier to record on a character...

    This is the plan. I'd rather not have three separate boxes on a character sheet for Slashing, Bashing, and Piercing defense. I'd rather give armor a Damage Reduction to the one(s) its resistant to and keep it simple. (Same for damage types like Fire / Arcane / Acid etc.)

    Like I mentioned in the second post, incorporating specific protections against damage types isn't hard with the proposed rules-lite version, and was of course going to be included either way. Realism is a good place to start, but when it gets in the way of function it can be sacrificed without...

    Well that (the specific damage type protection) is still applicable. Generic armor that provides only a +# AR would be the standard, but also available would be armors that provide damage redcution from certain types of attacks. Bashing, Slashing, Fire, Acid, and so on. So you're not missing out on...

    So in D&D and however many other RPGs there are a plethora of armors, not really much different from one another. Scale Mail. Breastplate, and Banded Mail all have their "how they were made and what of" text blocks, but statistically the armor rating difference is usually by one point. So why even...

    There's PLENTY of good material in there. SCP-093 and the various "color" tests made with it could probably last long enough to play a handful of sessions at least, or even be a full campaign on its own.

    Sucks, but I'm glad it's not an issue on my end. Unless this is all some elaborate ruse put on by you, the most cowardly of rogues. Or the most roguish of cowards... I can't tell sometimes.

    Am I alone in this? The flashchat page only loads "Having trouble? Try HTML 5." Which says the page is unavailable.

    Wondering if anyone has used any monsters from the SCP Foundation page in a game yet, and if you have, how it went. If you don't know the SCP, think of it like an Area 51 or Men in Black of sorts. Tracking and containing the supernatural and dangerous beings in our world and keeping them...

What are you looking for?:
Looking for group to introduce me to gaming. I have been looking at D&D for a while and picked up a starter set for myself but was unable to start a group due to lack of experience. Doesn't matter what game really but I would prefer a Shadowrun game since that goes with most of my interests and I recently picked up the core rules book, but any game will do. I would also prefer an online game as I am limited in my mobility during the school year.
About Me
Biography:
Newbie, trying to gain some experience to start a group with my friends and have fun.
