Roleplayer, lapsed blogger, and full-time dad.

Started playing with AD&D 1e and GMing with AD&D 2e. Ran D&D 3.x, 4e briefly, then became a fan of indie games and the OSR and expanded my horizons from there. Fond of GMless and short-form games that suit a busy schedule and are good for enticing non-gamers into the hobby.

comment Does Amber's bidding process have known issues, and if so, how can they be fixed?
Title fixed, and Amber experts probably know about the well known issues enough to answer this usefully, so voting to reopen. (Besides, it was closed with our bad-old close reasons. Today it would at best be held as "unclear", but yeah, it's likely clear to Amber experts.)

add appropriate system tag (http://meta.rpg.stackexchange.com/questions/3067/save-our-system-tags); pick a less flamebait-y title from the comment suggestions; correct book title; misc word/phrase choice copyedits

Interesting! For reducing the hassle of using actual coins, Ubiquity dice (which emulate coin-flip probabilities) would come in handy.

Can you tell us what is preventing you from creating such a checklist based on the things you personally forget and later remember?
