I am an avid RP and tabletop gamer, currently designing a tabletop skirmish game of my own. It is a hobby of mine to sit down with a core book for a game and decipher its system.

Actually, using the quoted text in my answer, each damage roll is separate and would have a minimum of one. Changing answer to reflect.

Minimum damage is always 1 no matter what negatives you have, but if they have DR or invulnerability it can be 0.

comment Dresden RPG thaumaturgy conditional triggers
@BrianS: No, the players I tried that game on had a lot of D&D and video games as a background so they just want the damage & and kill over creative solutions usually. MWP Marvel didn't inspire them much either.

Somehow completely missed that sidebar... Probably because my players tend to be extremely direct and do evocation

Makes me wonder if the Death Curse is just Thaumaturgy with the accepting of consequences...

comment How to deal with players asking for an “infodump”
This is closest to my GM style, especially because I know I'll have to improv something later that I might not have in the data.

comment Looking for a game system that involves advanced math
I just used the BattleMech Designer program for that. And those charts are usually derived from anything from algebra (for mech tonnage) to calculus (how tall your mech is, the angle of LoS and height of target or structures in between)

comment Semi-random name generator
The primary thing that makes this useful is that it's not cloud-based. However, it's not free for anything but the core stuff so if it's not basic fantasy names you lose out.
