comment Concealed door vs Secret door
Trap door under a rug is so cliche' that as soon as you say there's a rug in a room, players ask to look under it. :)

comment The half-elf: is it balanced?
@mxyzplk : yes and no. the game mechanics follows specific, mathematical rules, although I am unaware of these rules when it comes to game design. Having so many game designers that know these rules can provide a good, detailed answer on this regard.

comment Warrior with two long swords. Penalties?
the feat would produce a -4/-4. However, I used to have -2/-2, although I don't understand why. My question stems from this.

comment What game/circumstance uses Fudge dice?
@Bryant : you should not. I joined SO very early, so we already discussed many of these issues at that time. What I did not appreciate in this specific case was the rather aggressive downvoting. Nevertheless, I am open to discussion and created a question on meta meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/314/…

comment What game/circumstance uses Fudge dice?
@Rob : It's banal when you know it. I've never heard of Fudge. When I posted the question, I assumed it was just the name of the type of dice.

comment What is the statistically superior character creation method, twelve 3d6 or six 4d6?
@bySwarm: you are absolutely right with the "no room to ignore outliers". I'd like to comment though that excluding the lowest die in the 4d6 set technically reduces the chance of an outlier. However, a very bad throw (e.g. 3,2,1,1), forces you accept the resulting 6 due to the effect you report

comment What is the statistically superior character creation method, twelve 3d6 or six 4d6?
3d6 is thrown 12 times, and the best 6 results are kept.

It seems you are right. I run some additional check and then post the graph.

Exactly. It's also called "barrel die". Thanks
