comment Can the astrology helping die decrease the chance of success?
I know the calculation is fairly nasty - by ignoring some open-endedness I can get fairly nice estimates, but since I had to ignore the open-endedness, I achieved neither necessary nor sufficient bounds. That was all back-of-the-envelope calculations, though.

comment Can the astrology helping die decrease the chance of success?
@Daenyth: Give a scenario and calculate the probability of success and failure without help from astrology and with help from astrology, such that the probability of success without astrology is greater than with astrology. Alternatively, give a mathematical proof (or extensive numerical proof covering the usual cases) that in every scenario the astrology helping die actually improves one's odds.

comment Acting role vs Player personality
@SevenSidedDie I guessed so and consider it a slight pity, since it did not allow me to discover more rpg theory. I will not get involved in defining "academic", and do not use English as a native language, so the precise connotations of the word are lost on me.

comment Acting role vs Player personality
@SevenSidedDie Can you give some semi-academic or academic citations (e.g. Solmukohta books, international journal of roleplaying) for stance theory, or has it remained restricted to the Forge (diaspora), which I would be uncomfortable calling even semi-academic?
