    I hope I did the math right. So with a 5 OR 6 needed on 3d6 there are 152 possibilities for success. That means a 70% chance of success. Right?

    Thanks fellas. I thought I had the right idea. That http://www.edcollins.com/backgammon/diceprob.htm website was very helpful!

    I'm not one who thinks probability is a fun time. So I had a question. A game is played with d6s. A 5 or 6 on a roll (on a single die face) is a success. On 1d6 that would be 33.34% chance of success and 66.68% of failure (is that right?) If a player rolled 2d6 the chance of success and...

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

    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.

    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...

About Me
Biography:
I'm 34 years old, and I like D&D and FF based roleplays, however I like all styles of roleplaying. I play FFXI, usually every day but it's dwindled down a little since joining this site. I'm available for one-on-one rp's if anyone is interested, but please PM me.

I haven't been involved in any group sessions in 5 years and I would really just like to get back into it as regularly as possible. I find that I do learn quickly, and I am VERY rusty on the rules right now, as the last time was with AD&D (yes 2nd edition) but I have yet to find anyone who still plays that edition.

I would appreciate a bit of a refresher and a walkthrough if possible, and I also want to have fun while learning more about the game.

Gaming Pet Peeves - Part One - Attendance

by Ashene on 05-30-2010 at 06:26 PM
Well I'm not quite sure how to actually organize my thoughts on this, however I've got a few pet peeves about role playing that I find very irritating...caused by both the GM and the other players, or player characters.

First issue is attendance. I find that attendance is good the first few sessions, where you've established your character, found how you're going to play your character, you come across certain life or death situations or the game sessions end up being simply role-playing

"Gamer Chicks" and Romance in RPG's.

by Ashene on 02-09-2010 at 11:10 PM
Well, this is a random rant I don't know many of you will want to read but I just have to get it off of my chest.

This has to do with the general subject of romance in role playing. Most of the role playing I've done has had a bit of romance in it and some innocent flirting which is fine. Though it never was the primary focus, it gave an interesting twist to the plot and me being a romantic, I had a blast with it.

There have been games where there has been a whorish type

"Gamer Chicks" - The Squeaquel

by Ashene on 02-04-2010 at 12:38 AM
LOL Just kind of "borrowed" the title from Alvin and the Chipmunks' new movie title...I really have no desire to go see it. Loved the cartoon though.

I find that even though I try to bring romance and fun into an rp, as a balance to the intense hack and slash happening, and no matter how much my characters attempt negotiations with NPC's, they tend to be ignored, by the players or even the GM.

The dice-rolling system in the chat room has not been kind to me...and

"Gamer Chicks" - Take Two!

by Ashene on 01-23-2010 at 09:33 PM
Someone who commented on my last entry the typical stereotypical role-player: acne-ridden teenager, maintaining the opinion that as a "gamer chick" I was seen as something gamers are not. It would be seen as me "getting in bed with those who are the stereotype."

Is it justified that gamers have to be acne-ridden teenagers or middle-aged men who still live in their mother's basements and play WoW or D&D all day? Why can't a somewhat successful woman or girl

"Gamer Chicks"

by Ashene on 01-23-2010 at 02:24 AM
I've never blogged...ever...on any site whatsoever, so why now? I just wanted to know what everyone thinks about this topic.

I mean, what's so special about "Gamer Chicks" or female gamers? I am one myself, and honestly it's not that big a deal is it? I have met several women gamers and they play many more MMORPG's or console games than I ever did in my entire lifetime. Perhaps it's because I like to role play more than ROLL play, that I'm more into the pen and paper aspect
