I'm a geek, a role-player and a biker.

I work for Diamond Light Source, developing open source scientific software for the UK national synchrotron facility. In the past I have worked in the robotics, mechatronics and laser micro-machining industries.

comment Maximum bookkeeping fantasy game with magic
It might be worth mentioning that Ars also fulfills the lots of dice request too. Sure you only have to roll 1d10 most of the time, but when you botch with vis, in an infernal aura when casting a ritual spell from a scroll while suffering from susceptibility to the infernal, then they soon rack up. (I had to roll 60 botch dice once, and we had a 30 dice both only a few weeks ago. *8')

comment How can I implement multiclassing?
The first rank in Rogue Trader is 5,000xp (0xp in Dark Heresy, 7-8,000xp in Black Crusade and 13,000xp in Deathwatch), so other Rogue Trader characters would be at Rank 3 by the time the multi-class character gained their first Rank in their second career. So those first 10 sessions or so would show no character development while the character accumulated the requisite XP and then BAM everything all at once. You would obviously not let characters take the same advance from both classes, but it would probably be unbalancing to let them chose which career to take advances from too.

comment How can I reliably turn a formulaic Eye range spell into a Touch spell?
We haven't house ruled PeIm spells, but we do rigorously enforce the 'number of senses' affected. Just perdoing sight is dangerous when people and critters have other senses they can target with.

That's Ok, your answer prompted me to add a little more detail to my question. Thanks for your time and sorry for wasting it.
