Nescire autem quid ante quam natus sis acciderit, id est semper esse puerum. Quid enim est aetas hominis, nisi ea memoria rerum veterum cum superiorum aetate contexitur? -- Cicero, Marcus Tullius (106-43BC)

comment Help Needed With Probability Math for 2d10
A Monte-Carlo simulation is not needed here. You can prove this trivially.

comment Why is time-dilated simulspace not an I Win button?
@Tynam: I was about to write an answer which would have been a pale paraphrased shadow of yours based on this assumption...

Is the summary: speed up simulspace gives you way more mental actions than any other means?

comment What are the benefits of owning a physical book?
@wraith808: Amazon wipes customer's Kindle and deletes account with no explanation. So, Amazon can stop your kindle from working without any considerations to your DRM-free pdfs. Kindle has DRM. Ebooks have DRM.

@wraith808: DRM is an issue because even if the pdf does not contain DRM, your ebook reader probably does. In addition, unless a vast majority of RPG PDFs sold are DRM-free, then your assertion that it is not a problem is erroneous. To be honest, I have no numbers to say either way. Bleurgh, we're getting argumentative. ^_~

Could I ask down voters (as I assume there will be down votes) to leave a comment or better yet, write an answer of your own.

comment Can a Sire be blood bound to his child?
One cannot be blood bound to someone one holds a bound over. Thus, a sire could blood bound all of their children and thus feed from them safely. Kinda a dodge thus a comment and not an answer. Of course, the added benefit is that the children will be nice, well behaved, and eager to please.

comment What are the pros, cons, and hitches of having only the players roll dice?
In my not so humble opinion, this is not system agnostic but D&D.
