Quite boring, really. Have faffed about with computers since the mid-80s, have worked as a network engineer, unix sysadmin and (occasionally) developer.

comment Can you roll dice pool or multiple dice rolls with only one dice?
Well, it may also be easier to check results with 5 dice rolled rather than 1 die rolled five times. But as far as probabilities goes, it's definitely equivalent.

comment As a GM, how can avoid pitfalls common to Generic Point Build Systems?
@shatterspike1 Ah. I have generally found that once you open the field up in this fashion, the "there is only one optimal build" narrative tends to change to "oh, I can get a decent-working character the way I WANT it?"

comment As a GM, how can avoid pitfalls common to Generic Point Build Systems?
@shatterspike1 hoped it would answer at least a part of it ("make things outside combat skill useful/necessary for combat-oriented characters"), but I am happy to delete it if you think it doesn't even fulfil that role.

comment Does armour weight halve when you wear it?
@Zachiel "Wearing armor is still more cumbersome..."? From experience, I'd much rather wear 20kg of armor than carrying 20kg of armor, since a decent-fitting armor is easier to move around while wearing than it is when it's in a bag you are carrying. That doesn't change the rules-as-written, though.

comment How do I calculate average damage for WFRPG using AnyDice?
I distinctly recall answering this question on RPG.SE a couple of years ago (well, how to calculate the expected value for various types of exploding dice).
