A Canadian geek, finishing off a chemistry degree. I typically hang around TeX.SX as I like the community and learn things by reading the questions. I'm also active on RPG.SX and History.SX.

comment How do I make weather an important part of the game?
A really easy way to keep track of the weather is to buy an old almanac- dirt cheap since you don't typically want them after the year has passed.

comment Is it possible to use rules from OGL or GSL in a computer game?
I thought that software was allowed, but games specifically were not? Are you sure there isn't a section you are missing, or was that just the d20 license?

comment Pre-modern farming: What percent of the population is in agriculture?
@Lohoris That is likely due to different base assumptions, which people are terrible at documenting. Suppose 1 person thinks D&D is most like the iron age Celts living in Germany just after the fall of the Roman Empire, while the next thinks it is most like 15th century Germany. Same region, good arguments both ways, totally different numbers.

Eh, I'm not a great improve DM. I prefer to have some sort of outline, then fill in the rest as I go. My 2nd favourite response to my DMing was when a player read the adventure I'd run for him and respond that he hadn't realized how much of it I'd been making up. However I still like having a template, plotline and stats ready to go. Just like a 2-3 page thing like most of the ones in the CoC core rulebook.

Added some bits on Taticus.

If you want a biased, but interesting perspective on that period among the Germanic tribes have a look at Taticus's Germania. It was a Roman historian's views of the culture and he includes bits on their farming abilities, though not numbers.
