comment What happens after level 30?
@waxeagle I guess I'd rather just keep playing, and not advancing. If the gameplay doesn't really allow that because of how advanced someone becomes by that point, then to me that's broken. (I probably erred by calling it "lame"...too divisive. I, personally, don't like it...but I'm just one dude.)

comment What happens after level 30?
If this is true, it is epic in it's lameness (a commentary on 4e, not your answer). What if I want to keep doing good (or evil, or whatever)? I dunno. A difference in philosophy, I suppose.

comment How reliable are dice rolling programs?
It just occured to me as I was reading all the answers that take care to explain that computer generated "random" numbers aren't really random...that dice rolling isn't random either. The physical shape of the die, combine with the surface it's rolled on and the way it is tossed will produce very predictable results, given enough information. Of course, like computers, we pretend it's random, and it might as well be, because we don't have trivial access to that precise information and model that would allow the prediction. Egad...I can't believe I typed this.

comment Inventiveness vs. breaking the game; How do I encourage one, without enabling the other?
I dunno. I think Maurycy has a great point. You can't get more covered in acid than being completely immersed. If the damage for that is determined to be 10d6 (presumably because that's how much surface area can maximally be exposed), then it makes perfect sense to say, okay, that's the maximum that one can possibly deal from acid damage from the swing. Great, logical solution.

Bleh. This sounds horrible. On the other hand, it's a great illustration of what he can look forward to, good or bad. So +1 for you.

@Brian Okay, this catches the essence of what I was looking for...the mindset required to capture the feel of the original ToH. Now, I have something to look forward to...after I finish the conversion, there will be a brief moment in time in the future when people will be able to ask me, "What system did you use to convert it, and when?", and I will be able to respond "Forthcore, and seven years ago..."
